Lady Gaga Should Support Arizona Boycott And Cancel Phoenix Gig

By Robert Paul Reyes

"Members of LGBTQ (lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender) groups in the US have set up an online petition pleading with her to scrap a gig there.

`Please be a lady for our community,` it read.

`Communities have called for a boycott of the state to make it happen. As an icon and beloved artist, please join us in boycotting Arizona and turn your trip into an opportunity to meet your little monsters in the Migrant LGBTQ.munity so that you can speak out against the hateful laws and be a champion for this human rights cause."

Lady Gaga is scheduled to perform at US Airways Center in Phoenix on July 31." Read more

Even though major provisions of the racist Arizona Immigration law have been blocked by a judge, Lady Gaga should still cancel her Phoenix gig to express solidarity with the hardworking immigrant community.

Lady Gaga has been a solid supporter of gays and lesbians, and the homosexual community has embraced her. If the Lady scratches her Phoenix gig, she will find that the Hispanic community will also welcome her with open arms.

Even the vilified Kanye West has declared that he is boycotting Arizona because of the state`s immigration laws. If Lady Gaga performs in Phoenix as scheduled it will be perceived as an insult by the Latino community.

Lady Gaga: Don`t let your Hispanic monsters down, cancel your Phoenix show!
