Lady Gaga Honoured For Promoting Gay Rights!

By on 22 March, 2011

Quirky singer Lady Gaga has been honoured for her work on promoting gay rights in the U.S. military with a special prize at a ceremony in Washington, D.C. on Monday night (21st March 2011)!

The Just Dance  hitmaker is a heavy supporter of the campaign against the controversial ‘Don’t ask, don’t tell’ policy, which bans homosexual U.S. service personnel from revealing their sexuality.

She was recognised for her efforts at the Servicemembers Legal Defense Network‘s 2011 dinner in Washington, D.C. on Monday, when she was presented with the Randy Shilts Visibility Award, which honours those who work to promote the SLDN‘s campaign.

Gaga unfortunately could not attend in person to collect the prize as she is currently on tour. But she did send a video message, which was recorded during a flight on a private jet (as you do).

She told the ceremony:

“I am honoured to accept this award from this organisation that has been dedicated to the servicemembers for the last 17 years, and I recognise that this fight doesn’t end here. We still have so much more to do.”

In a post on her Twitter page, she adds:

“I wish I’d been there in person to show my respect to SLDN, I’m honoured to be awarded by my brave friends.”
