Madison Bailey, the star of hit Netflix teen drama Outer Banks, is reminding people to stand with black members of the LGBTQ community.

Madison, who is openly gay, tweeted out, ALL BLACK LIVES MATTER. Don’t forget to be inclusive of our black queer and trans lives. If you exclude us, you’re fucking up the movement. You don’t get to pick and choose. #PrideMonth#ALLBlackLivesMatter."

She's also been vocal on Instagram, sharing a post captioned, "Ignorance is bliss to the majority and death to the minority. Educate yourself, educate your children, your friends, your family."

The rest of the Outer Banks has spoken out as well, with Madelyn Cline, who plays Sarah Cameron, writing, "Listen. Reflect. Educate yourself. Have difficult conversations. Vote if you can. We aren’t just talking about a hashtag we are talking about change."

Chase Stokes, who plays the lead character John B, has been using his platform to tweet out information about voting.
