Lady Gaga didn’t bother putting on her poker face while speaking to thousands at Sunday’s National Equality March in Washington D.C.
“Are you listening?!?” Gaga, whose real name is Stefani Germanotta, said in a speech aimed toward U.S. Pres. Barack Obama to keep his promises regarding discrimination policies and openly allowing homosexuals in the military. “We will continue to push your administration to bring your promise to reality.”
Gaga, who is bisexual, told the audience: “I will never turn my back on my friends — today is not a one-off performance.”
Also in attendance at the rally were Sex And The City‘s openly gay star Cynthia Nixon, as well as Judy Shepard, whose son Matthew was murdered over his sexuality 11 years ago Monday.
