Lady GaGa To Launch ‘Born This Way’ Foundation

Published: Wednesday 2nd Nov 2011 by David

The last two years has seen Pop ambassador Lady GaGa lend her voice to the fight against bullying and inequality, inadvertently becoming a focal point for many contemporary civil rights issues, including marriage equality and Don’t Ask Don’t Tell.

Now, she has gone one step further in her bid to make the world a better place, with the conception of the  ‘Born This Way’ foundation.

Details on the project below…

To be headed by she and her mother Cynthia Germanotta, the non profit  organization will focus on the  empowerment, career development and self confidence of the youth it hopes to help.

She explained:

Together we hope to establish a standard of Bravery and Kindness, as well as a community worldwide that protects and nurtures others in the face of bullying and abandonment.

In partnership with the Germanotta’s are The California Endowment and the Berkman Center for Internet & Society at Harvard University, which stated:

This brand of leadership is sorely needed in today’s world.

Lady Gaga will help empower and give voice to young people who find themselves overwhelmed, undersupported, disconnected, isolated, bullied, or struggling.

Kudos to GaGa for doing her part to provide help to those who need it. For while many may choose to cite her support of the disenfranchised as a marketing ploy to boost sales, it is impossible to economize the positive effect this will have on all those involved.

    She is genuine, she cares, she is not manufactured.

  2. RICHANDBLACK11 November 2, 2011

    NO SHADE I THINK SHE IS USING THIS GAY S*** FOR FAME….WAS SHE AT ANY OF THE GAY PRIDE AROUND THE WORLD THIS YEAR….UMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMM

  3. DUNKFAN November 2, 2011

    She doesn’t need to go to pride to represent, her helping homeless gay teens is enough.

  4. DUNKFAN November 2, 2011

    What has Madonna ever done for the Gay community?

  5. JAMIR21 November 2, 2011

    Hmmmmmmm….so she is only going to help out gay people F*** OUT OF HERE !

  6. SHESDUMB IS NO LONGER A GAGA STAN November 2, 2011

    LADY GAGA IS ILLUMINATI AND IS A GIMMICK. SHE IS DOING EVERYTHING POSSIBLE TO GET HER CODED MESSAGE OUT TO THE MASSES WHICH IS WHY HER S*** WAS SOLD FOR 99 CENT AND WAS GIVEN AWAY FOR FREE WITH A CELL PHONE PURCHASE.
    I RESPECT THE FACT THAT SHE IS TALENTED UNLIKE 80 PERCENT OF TODAYS GIRLS, BUT SHE DOESNT SIT RIGHT WITH ME ANY LONGER.

    So tired of her fake b*******. Not all gays/bisexuals like Lady Gaga and it’s embarrasing that she’s “representing” us. Leave the gay community alone you h**! She’s just using the underdogs to seem “real, genuine and all that s***”, but this fame-horney h** ain’t foolin’ me.

    She was at Europride.

    Anyway,Call it “using the gays” or “gimmicks” all you want but you can’t deny Gaga is at least attempting to do her part in philantropy.I feel she genuinely has love for these people and I DON’T think she would do it for record sales but that’s my opinion.

  11. JAMIR21 November 2, 2011

    Always helping gay people…like come on now…I am a former fan of gaga now !

  12. ChristinasCOMING November 2, 2011

    Gaga has never fooled me.

    I’ve never liked her.

    I’m gay and will not be represented by some manufactured, crack addicted gimmick.

  13. JAMIR21 November 2, 2011

    @ Christinacoming
    Are you a boy or a girl #JUST SAYING…NO OFFENCE !

  14. ISTANN4GAGA November 2, 2011

    Oh and I Know that Gaga is known for catering to “Gays” BUT Nowhere in this article did it specifically say Gay,LGBT,or Homosexual.

  15. ChristinasCOMING November 2, 2011

    @ Jamir 21

    I don’t see how my gender plays a part in my hatred towards Gaga but I am a guy. I have had a lot of gay guys and some family members be shocked that I’m not a fan of hers and so on.

    But like I said before, I’m not falling for her crazy antics when it comes to standing up for the gay community.

    The fact that her album was given away practically for free is proof that she’s going down faster than a fat woman sliding down a greased pole. She found a way to sell her music, she knew what community to target and it worked.

    Do you honestly think Gaga would still be relevant now if she hadn’t targeted the gay community has her money making machine?

    @ISTANN4GAGA
    I know! People really can´t read. Specially those who stan for crap “artists”

  17. Onyx November 2, 2011

    Some people find any reasons to hate MADONNA. She’s a woman-Man, god she really do so much for Gays, do you ever seen the S** book pictures, yeah! Madge used real P*** Gay Actors for the book, one of them was a famous Male P*** Star Actor who later die of A***. I don’t want to say this but some of you force me to do this even if i like GaGa.

    Lady Gaga List: Things That I Have To Do That MADONNA Has Already Done.
    1- Vogue Video – Alejandro Video (Done)
    2- Express Yourself – Born This Way (Done)
    3- Kiss Britney Spears – She try at the VMA’s (Failure)
    4- Conquer The LGBT Community – She’s trying so hard (Done)
    5- Be The Queen of Pop – She’s trying so hard too (Failure)

  18. RDK November 2, 2011

    she knows how to lead them brain wash gays,she is going to be a billionaire of this sh-it,she was popular,now this is going to put her in to the Stratosphere,on a whole new level of stardom..just saying i an’t knocking her hustle.

  19. BitchIcantevenspellwelfare November 2, 2011

    @ONYX,

    “She’s a woman-Man, god she really do so much for Gays, do you ever seen the S** book pictures, yeah! Madge used real P*** Gay Actors for the book, one of them was a famous Male P*** Star Actor who later die of A***.”

    Will you please explain to me how THIS has anything to do with philanthropy?

    & I LOVE Madonna.

  20. NICK November 2, 2011

    THIS IS AWESOME, love the concept!

  21. Those That Cannot Do, Stan November 2, 2011

    So is this what she’s planning to do when the next album further declines in sales?

    Shaking my head. This all strikes me as merely a way to keep herself in the media and employ marketing tactics by painting herself as a benevolent fairy-godmother.

    Why is it headed by her and her mother? Have either of them worked for a professional organization? Do either of them have business degrees?

    Why name it after a song from an album? Why not give it a genuine name that doesn’t focus entirely on her music career?

    …I feel like there will be a scandal that definitely emerges from this.

  22. BitchIcantevenspellwelfare November 2, 2011

    @ISTANN4GAGA, exactly!!!

    Again, this is what the statement says:

    “Lady Gaga will help empower and give voice to young people who find themselves overwhelmed, undersupported, disconnected, isolated, bullied, or struggling.”

    This can cover a RANGE of people, not just GLBT people.

  23. Voiceoftruth November 2, 2011

    @bitchicantevenspellwelfare Preach sister!

    Gaga is doing her geniune best to help use any influence she has to make a positive difference in some form.

    Though many LGBT people may be helped by this foundation, it was NEVER said that this foundation was targeted at them alone. It is to “help eempower and give a voice to young people who find themselves overwhelmed, undersupported, disconnected, isolated, bullied, or struggling”…straight people also fall into this catergory.

    I find it deeply sad that people are so bitterly cynical and look for ways to attack someone who is clearly doing something that will help people (be it if it is just one person that decides not to commit suicide).

    God Bless Gaga (and the many wonderful human beings in the world that try to help support the vulnerable people out there.)

    BRAVERY. ACCEPTANCE. LOVE.

  24. RICHANDBLACK11 November 2, 2011

    I know i was messing around ….I like gaga she is a very smart women hands down., she is doing a good deed.

  25. Onyx November 2, 2011

    @BitchIcantevenspellwelfare
    Just saying because someone say here (What has Madonna ever done for the Gay community?)
    Is something more to me that put your name on a Foundation that you won’t even have the time to care about, she would be to busy making albums and trying to impress us. Don’t get me wrong i love Gaga but don’t mess with Her Madgesty. Kisses.

  26. fays12 November 2, 2011

    @Onyx Madonna never sopported the Gay comunaty.. it just happened that Gay people love her. I love Madonna though

  27. Onyx November 2, 2011

    @fays12
    Wherever i’m not trying to convince anybody.

  28. ERIC November 2, 2011

    Of course some people will say she’s doing this for sales and that’s one of the kind of people this Foundation reaches to, people with no personal identity that waste their time messing with someone else’s business.

    But something is certain, the relevancy and, most importantly, the quality of this foundation is to be tested with time.

    I know that if she asks for voluntaries, many, many, many people will say ‘yes’ and help. 🙂

  29. nicegirl November 3, 2011

    She’s doing something good for the community and if you read the whole thing, she is supporting “young people who find themselves overwhelmed, undersupported, disconnected, isolated, bullied, or struggling,” not just the gay community.

    She supports many foundations.

  30. 77Abe77 November 3, 2011

    honorable gesture……???……………but she still a copycat hitching a ride on the gay ol wagon.

  31. 77Abe77 November 3, 2011

    Oh & I know WHO & WHERE she stole that look and hairdo from.
