Lady Gaga is a well known advocate for the LGBTQIA+ community. In 2019, she dressed in sparkling rainbow platforms for a powerful performance and speech at the Stonewall Day Concert in New York City — which marked the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall riots. The Stonewall riots took place at the end of June 1969 in response to a police raid at the Stonewall Inn in the Greenwich Village neighborhood of Manhattan, New York City.
“True love is when you would take a bullet for someone,” Gaga said during her speech. “And you know I would take a bullet for you any day of the week,” Gaga said during her speech. She expressed how crucial change is to “the system of an extremely oppressive administration.” The singer continued, “I may not, to some people, be considered a part of this community, even though I like girls sometimes. I would never degrade the fight you have endured,” she said, noting, “You have the power. You are so, so powerful, and I hope you feel that power today.”
