Alicia Keys, Cyndi Lauper, Lady Gaga and more came out to help honor Stonewall 50 years celebration at New York City’s Pride Day.
Pride Live’s Stonewall Day Concert was a big event to honor the historic Stonewall Inn riots where gay and lesbians fought back against police raids. Both Keys and Lady Gaga took the stage to express how honored they were to be part of such a fantastic event.
Lady Gaga gave an emotional speech about the community. It was powerful but did not make as much of a statement as her outfit that oozed her Pride love.
She rocked short denim shorts with a tiny strapless black bandeau, and a Versace rainbow striped cropped denim jacket. The A Star Is Born actress competed her Pride look with a pair of over-the-knee rainbow striped platform boots that had fans drooling.
