RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) - Beyonce is supporting efforts to overturn a North Carolina law limiting legal protections to lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people.

The entertainment icon did not directly speak out against House Bill 2 on her website Wednesday, but she did display a photo of a person wearing a T-shirt displaying the slogan “Y’all means all” followed by the Internet address of Equality NC.

In a statement on the site, Beyonce said Equality NC is one of several organizations “doing the good work to get this bill overturned,” and asked her fans to donate, volunteer or attend an event.

Beyonce brought her The Formation World Tour to Raleigh on Wednesday. She said she thought it was important “to bring attention to those who are committed to … carrying on the message of equality.”
