Lady Gaga to Be Honored For LGBT Advocacy

by at . Comments

Lady Gaga's message, songs, videos and performances have made her something of a gay icon for some time, so it's not surprising she's about to be honored for her contributions.

On December 4, she will receive the Trevor Project's Trevor Hero Award for her advocacy on behalf to the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) community.

"Our young people are at the center of a health crisis, and vocal leaders like Lady Gaga have stepped up to the challenge of helping change our culture," said David McFarland, interim executive director and CEO of the Trevor Project.

"Our honorees are working with the Trevor Project to make a better today and a brighter tomorrow. We are proud to honor Lady Gaga with the Trevor Hero Award for her work to encourage young people to express their true selves with pride."

True to form, the 25-year-old Lady Gaga recently announced the launch of the Born This Way Foundation with her mother, Cynthia Germanotta.

The foundation aims to promote "youth empowerment and equality by addressing issues like self-confidence, well-being, anti-bullying, mentoring and career development and will utilize digital mobilization as a means to create positive change."

Maybe im jaded, but almost everybody in the entertainment industry (gaga included) have alterior motives for everything they do. I would like to believe that her hearts in the right place, but since everything she does seems calculated, why is this any different.
