Lady GaGa will be honored with the Randy Shilts Visibility Award at the Servicemembers Legal Defense Network (SLDN) Annual National Dinner on Saturday.
Held in Washington D.C., Queen GaGa will receive the award in recognition of her "accomplishments in bringing the plight of lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) service personnel to the public’s attention."
Army Sergeant First Class Stacy Vasquez, who escorted GaGa at the MTV Video Awards in September, will accept the award on her behalf.
The organization added:
"Lady GaGa’s outspoken commitment to end 'Don’t Ask' discrimination renewed the call for repeal on the national stage and emboldened millions of young people to get engaged, take action and play a decisive role in repealing this bad law. We are profoundly grateful to Lady GaGa for her passion and tireless involvement."
Amen to that!
Congratulations, GaGa! You deserve this.
