Emma Watson is always on the cutting edge of fashion at red carpet events and awards ceremonies, but she also uses her clothing to make a social statement sometimes. That’s exactly what Watson did while at the 2017 MTV Movie & TV Awards, when she wore a subtle pin with a big message. While the actress has showcased her eco-friendly fashion sense throughout the years, the star of Beauty and the Beast made a statement about inclusivity with her tiny accessory during the March 7th awards ceremony.

Rather than go with a princess look at the MTV Movie & TV Awards, Watson went edgy with a black asymmetrical dress by KITX. And on her waist, she had a blue ampersand pin. This & symbol accessory is from the LGBTQ acceptance organization GLAAD.

It’s explained on the organization’s website as:

“Proudly display the ampersand to declare that you stand with all communities subject to discrimination – including women, Muslims, immigrants, and LGBTQ people.”
