"No matter gay, straight, or bi,
Lesbian, transgendered life,
I'm on the right track baby,
I was born to survive."- Lady Gaga
* Lady Gaga, known for her outlandish outfits, lyrics and heavy pop beats is not a stranger to lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender or LGBT rights
* Hit “Born this way” looks at themes of gender equality which “bears no prejudice, no judgment”
* Through her outfits, music videos and interviews she fights for LGBT equality. Her outfits are rarely a thing that is “just for show”
* Fun Fact: her meat dress she wore at the 2010 MTV Video Music Awards was a stand against the military’s “don’t ask, don’t tell” policy
* If a soldier revealed that he/she was gay, they would not be able to continue their services in the military. The law was later overturned.
* “if we don’t stand up for what we believe in, if we don’t fight for our rights, pretty soon we’re going to have as much rights as the meat on our bones”
* Earlier this year, Gaga belted the American National anthem at an NYC Pride rally changing the lyrics from “Oh say does that star-spangled banner yet wave” to “Oh say does that star spangled flag of pride yet wave…”
