Lady Gaga Launches ‘Born This Way Foundation’ Live From Harvard
We believe that everyone has the right to feel safe, to be empowered and to make a difference in the world. Together, we will move towards acceptance, bravery and love.”
Joined by Oprah (you know she loves us), Deepak Chopra and U.S. Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius, Gaga chatted with fans during a live YouTube broadcast of Wednesday’s event. Despite some technical difficulties, we saw Gaga answer questions, speak eloquently about the issues, and bring her mother on stage for the closing. The Guardian provided a play-by-play, for those of us who missed it.
We hear enough talk of violence and suicide in our community. I’m happy to see someone with so much influence standing up as an ally, and helping to raise awareness around the issues that matter to us.
What is your take on the Born This Way Foundation? Do you think Lady Gaga will help promote positive change? Can’t we all give peace a chance?
Let’s hear your thoughts, please. Videos of the event are popping up all over.
