On Sunday, a massive crowd gathered outside the Capitol in Washington D.C. to march for gay rights, and among the speakers to address the crowd were activists Judy Shepard, whose son Matthew Shepard died in 1998 as the result of a hate crime, Sex and the City star Cynthia Nixon, and Lady Gaga.
Wearing a moderately conservative outfit, consisting of white shirt, black skirt and suspenders, Lady Gaga said that she was inspired by the young people attending the rally and that she had “the most beautiful gay fans in the world.”
“Obama, I know you are listening,” she said, before screaming, “Are you listening?” to the cheers of fans. (CNN)
