(LOS ANGELES TIMES) – Beyoncé’s gay marriage stance is pretty clear.

Queen Bey posted a picture of a handwritten red note Tuesday on Instagram with a variation of her signature “Single Ladies (Put a Ring On It)” lyrics scrawled on it.

“If you like it you should be able to put a ring on it #wewillunite4marriageequality! B” she wrote . The pic was liked by more than 220,000 people in about 24 hours.

Her sentiments echo those of husband Jay-Z, who in May 2011 equated the issue to being racist against African Americans.

“It’s discrimination, plain and simple,” he told CNN, adding, “What people do in their own homes is their business and you can choose to love whoever you love… That’s their business.”
