Pop Star Lady Gaga Wins GLAAD Award
Lady Gaga has won the outstanding music artist award at the Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation Awards in San Francisco.
The singer, who caused a stir with a lesbian kiss in her video for Telephone, beat American Idol star Adam Lambert to the honour at the show."
Congratulations to lady Gaga, she is deserving of this award. It`s not a surprise that the gay-friendly Lady Gaga has legions of loyal gay fans.
Lady Gaga has an international following, and in some of the countries where she has performed gays and lesbians are still treated like second-class citizens. Hopefully Lady Gaga`s gay-positive statements and attitude will make a positive impact in the less-enlightened nations where she`s held concerts.
Lady Gaga is a good role model for other entertainers. It`s not enough to be a gifted thespian or a talented singer, artists should use their celebrity to do some good in this world. It`s not just about making a buck, it`s about changing this world for the better
Lady Gaga, your fans of all sexual orientations salute you!
