Gaga Supports Gay Pride in Rome

The Singer Denounces Intolerance and Discrimination

Published June 12, 2011

On the heels of a huge anti gay snafu by Tracy Morgan, Lady Gaga is on the other side of the ocean in full support of the LGBT community that she praised for their “great courage” according to USAToday.com. She sang to a crowd of hundreds of thousands of people who marched through the streets of Central Rome in the gay pride parade.

Her performance was described as brief, but the crowd, which she says inspires her, cheered on their number one green wig wearing super star. She told the crowd that she is often asked, ‘How gay are you, Lady Gaga?’ My answer is I am a child of diversity.”

She played the piano and sang a few numbers decked out in Versace at the ancient Circus Maximus Stadium. But she devoted much of her appearance to denounce intolerance and discrimination against gays and transgender people, reports AP. Among the places she cited was the Middle East, Poland, Russia and Lithuania.
