Lady Gaga Celebrates Pride With Surprise Stonewall Inn Appearance

Lady Gaga honored Pride Month this week by dropping by the symbolic birthplace of the LGBTQ rights movement: New York’s Stonewall Inn.

GLAAD officials had kept the Oscar, Golden Globe and Grammy winning icon’s Friday appearance under wraps from thousands of revelers, as well as journalists, who had gathered in front of a temporary stage for Pride Live’s Stonewall Day Concert. True to form, Gaga didn’t disappoint, delivering an impassioned speech in which she reaffirmed her long-standing commitment to the LGBTQ community.

“It is said that those who threw the first brick on that historic night were members of the trans community,” she told the crowd, as seen in the video below. “And while we have made tremendous progress, we find ourselves also at a time where attacks on the trans community are on an increasing rise each day. I will not tolerate this.”
