Millions of people are in New York for Pride Live and June 28, 2019, is the 50-year anniversary of the Stonewall riots, also known as Stonewall Day. On this special day that honors the early LGBTQ brave men and women who fought against discrimination and police brutality, Lady Gaga made a surprise appearance in New York and spoke to supporters offering praise, encouragement, strength and plenty of Gaga love.
Lady Gaga has been one of Hollywood's most vocal supporters of the LGBTQ community and it was only fitting that she returns to her hometown and celebrate with the community that she not only dearly loves her but loves her equally as well.
Standing on stage at Waverly and Christopher Street, Lady Gaga poured out her heart to the global LGBTQ community and let them know how much she loved them.
"True love is when you would take a bullet for someone and you know I would take a bullet for you any day of the week.
