Lady Gaga’s Advocacy for Gay Rights
Lady Gaga puts Gay Rights first and foremost.
Lady Gaga has always showed a fierce dedication to her gay audience, the members of whom make up a significant part of the diva’s fan base. Her loyalty to gay rights has manifested in many ways, but most recently the eccentric performer has demonstrated her dedication by ending a deal with Target.
Target had prepared a deal with Lady Gaga that would have their stores exclusively selling a special deluxe edition of “Born this Way,” which would release in May.
However, Gaga made it clear that this deal had stipulations. In Gaga’s own words, “Our relationship is hinged upon their reform in the company to support the gay community and to redeem the mistakes they’ve made supporting these [anti-gay] groups.”
It is probable that Lady Gaga ended this deal due to complaints from fans, who felt offense as Target donated $150,000 to a political fund last year that supported an anti-gay Republican nominee.
This wouldn’t be the first time that Gaga has fought in the struggle for gay rights. In the past, she has used Twitter as a communication vessel for the repeal of “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell.” Gaga has also admitted to Rolling Stone that she is bisexual, and her latest hit “Born this Way” is interpreted by many as a positive anthem for gays.
By ending her deal with Target, Lady Gaga has shown that she is truly dedicated to the cause and passionate about gay rights, as well as receptive to her fans feelings.
