[artist id="3061469"]Lady Gaga[/artist] is joining the chorus of famous gay-rights supporters applauding Wednesday’s overturning in California of controversial Proposition 8, which banned same-sex marriage. The pop star, who has always been a vocal supporter of the gay community, has revealed she’s so happy about the ruling that it inspired her to write new music.
“At the moments notice of PROP 8 DEATH I instantly began to write music. BUBBLE DREAMS FOREVER! FULL EQUALITY! THIS IS JUST THE BEGINNING! REJOICE and CELEBRATE gay communities and straight all over the world. Our voices are being heard! Loud! SCREAM LOUD AMERICANOS!” she told fans on her Facebook and Twitter.
Several other celebrities publicly cheered on the news that U.S. District Chief Judge Vaughn R. Walker ruled that the voter-approved ban was unconstitutional .
Gaga, who has always taken a stand against discrimination towards the gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender community, most recently paid homage to them in her music video for “Alejandro.” “It is a celebration of my love and appreciation for the gay community, my admiration of their bravery, their love for one another and their courage in their relationships,” she told Larry King about the clip that features male dancers in a few erotic sequences.
Earlier this year, the singer took a bold stand for high school student Cole Goforth, who was sent home from Greenbrier High School in Tennessee for wearing a T-shirt that read “I Heart Lady Gay Gay.”
“Thank u for wearing your T-shirt proud at school, you make me so proud, at the monsterball, you are an inspiration to us all. I love you,” Gaga tweeted. “I love you Cole, you just be yourself,” she added while on tour in Australia. “You’re perfect the way God made you.”
