Demi Lovato took to the 2016 Billboard Music Award stage to perform her hit "Cool for the Summer," but it was her outfit that had social media buzzing.

Lovato's black ensemble was adorned with a sparkly restroom pictogram that is meant to convey a gender neutral facility. While some in the LGBTQ community object to using a symbol that is half-man, half-woman, social media nonetheless appreciated Lovato's message.

Lovato also isn't limiting her support to simply wearing a T-shirt. She and Nick Jonas, who are going out on tour together beginning in June, canceled their North Carolina tour dates in the wake of the law passed that requires transgender people to use the bathroom for the gender assigned to them at birth.

"We know the cancellation of these shows is disappointing to our fans, but we trust that you will stand united with us against this hateful law," they said in a joint statement back in April. "One of our goals for the tour has always been to create an atmosphere where every single attendee feels equal, included, and accepted for who they are. North Carolina's discriminatory HB2 law is extremely disappointing, and it takes away some of the LGBT community's most basic rights and protections."
