Lady Gaga Champions Gay Rights During EuroPride Rally in Rome

Lady Gaga sings for gay rights in Rome.

Lady Gaga made a statement after singing her chart-topping self-empowerment song “Born this Way” and new song “The Edge of Glory” at the EuroPride rally held at Circus Maximus in Rome last Saturday.

“Today and every day we fight for freedom. We fight for justice. We beckon for compassion, understanding and above all we want full equality now,” she declared to thousands of people who graced the concert.

The US pop diva criticised governments in Russia, Poland, Lithuania, Hungary and Lebanon for condemning young people to a life of isolation and discrimination and told crowd: “We’re all from the same DNA. We were just born this way.”

Lady Gaga’s speech concluded the parade through Rome where around 1 million participants criticised the Vatican and Italy’s government for condemning gay people.

“I want to tell the world, Europe and above all Italy, which is a bit closed, that we have the right to be treated like human beings,” said 25-year-old pop icon who donned a green hair and a silver dress with feathers.

Placards read “Different People, Same Rights” and “Papa No, Gaga Si”.

Barely a month ago, Lady Gaga was named by Forbes magazine as the Most Powerful Celebrity this year dethroning Oprah Winfrey (CLICK HERE for related article). She seemed to be using this power now to be the voice of the LGBT community around the world. Last year, she spoke out against the now repealed US policy which forced gay servicemen and women to keep their sexuality secret or face dismissal.

    The bible is very clear that HOMOSEXUALITY is a SIN! Why there are testimonies that they have overcome this detestable lifestyle. Only through CHRIST JESUS one can have victory over this demonic lifestyle!!!

    kaya lab na lab ko si lady gaga kc gay cya like me!

  5. FYI, gay individuals are BORN gay. They don’t become gay because they were influence by other people. Geeezz, why are we even arguing about this. Common sense. But i guess if you dont know how it feels to be them, then chances are you’ll never get it. . .

    it’s fine to have “baklas” in society, but TO PROMOTE that it’s OK is totally WRONG because it can encourage those who are still in the early stage of sexual discovery to hastily decide on becoming “bakla”. let us always keep the STANDARD that God created only MAN and WOMAN. if ever a potential “bakla” is really having a difficulty living what God has made him physically, then he can decide for his own lifestyle as there is also NO STATE LAW that prohibits it (except in Islamic Countries or elsewhere) and society must respect it. just let the “bakla” (if indeed he still believes his faith as Christian or Muslim) to try to explain himself to God when the time comes to meet Him. (As nobody can question God’s eternal mercy to those who truly seek for it).

    si christine puro mga ka gagahan ang pinag sasabi. back up your statesments dude. referring everything to God does not fly no more.
    tulad ng sinabi ng iba, you don’t know what it feels like to be anything but straight. unless you’ve walked in their shoes and have gone through what these people have gone through, you just cant say ish like that. you just come off ignorant and dumb.
    sa susunod na magbibitiw ka ng mga maaanghang na mga salita, you gotta make sure na wala kang masasagasaan. how would you feel if you were in thier position tapos may mga tao na pilit baguhin ang iyong pagkatao?
    think about…

    Magtagalog ka na lang christine kasi mas nakakahiya ang mali mali mong spelling at grammar kaysa maging bakla.

    If it wasn,t for the likes of Lady Gaga and all the other so called celebs out there our young people might make better life choices. She seems to think there is nothing wrong with being gay, well it is DOWNRIGHT DEGRADING ESPECIALLY TO WOMEN, DISGUSTING, IMMORAL AND GOES TOTALLY AGAINST NATURE.God created us that men choice women and women choice men and for her to stand up in what is supposedly the holiest place in the country and say otherwise is a mockery to the catholic church. She should be told that just because she has no morals she does not have the right to corrupt the minds of our young people, and indeed actually has a responsibility to encourage them to see that what is wrong is wrong!!!! Unfortunately our young people are easily influenced and that is why lady gaga and others make a killing on their celeb status (whatever that is). In summery Lady Gaga if you have no morals or self respect well fine!! just don,t try to make everyone think that you do. You can sing but thats about it really, the rest of your lifestyle choices leave a lot to be desired.

  20. lapit na talaga magunaw ang mundo… dahil marami na ang sumusunod kay gaga
