The “Never Not Love You” actress was praised online not only for her presence as an ally, but also for her low-key donation to the cause. She was listed among donors as “Alexis Lustre” for an undisclosed amount.
Prior to the parade, Lustre called for donations to the Pride march on her Instagram Stories.
“Notice how she uses the name Alexis. Humility at its best,” said Twitter user Vee (@ofrosesandpoets). “I stan a strong independent woman who is an intellectual, multitalented, a brave woman who never is afraid of breaking norms and is for gender equality.”
