Lady Gaga Singing the National Anthem @ the NYC Pride Rally 2013 The openly-bisexual artist is one of the entertainment industry’s most well-known gay rights advocates, spreading the message of LGBT equality through speeches and through her music.
In wake of the recent Supreme Court decisions that struck down the Defense Against Marriage Act (DOMA) and deemed California’s Proposition 8 unconstitutional, bringing back gay marriage in the state, this year’s Pride rally will be especially celebratory for members of the LGBT community and their allies.
Gaga attributed her spiritual growth and survival to the LGBT community, explaining that she “felt so damaged, so destroyed, so degraded by those kids at school, by [her] own psychological struggles.”
“But then it was you that saved me,” she stated on Friday. “You saved me, my friends in the LGBT community time and time again. And I saw God for the first real time in all of you. You were sent to me like angels to protect me and to save me. It was you who understood my need to hide behind the wigs, the glasses, the glamour, the clothing … I get to see God every day when I’m with you.”
