Repping For Gay Rights Abroad! GaGa To March In Rome's Gay Pride Parade

lady gaga to march in gay pride parade in rome

An inspiration, as always!

On Saturday, Lady GaGa will march in the gay pride parade in Rome's Circus Maximus, which marks the close of 2011 Euro Pride.

Here's what U.S. Ambassador to Italy David Thorne had to say about GaGa's involvement in the parade:

"[We are] very proud to have an Italian-American artist of her stature [come to the Italian capital.]"

More from Thorne about gay rights, in a quote from Hillary Clinton:

"Human rights are gay rights and gay rights are human rights.”

We couldn't agree more, and we're THRILLED to hear that our wifey is making the trek all the way out to Rome to rep for the gay community abroad!

EQUAL RIGHTS FOR ALL!

A true American trailblazer has died.

The first woman to run for Vice President, Geraldine Ferraro, passed away on Saturday at the age of 75.

She had been battling cancer for more than a decade.

Ferraro was Walter Mondale's running mate against Ronald Reagan and George H.W. Bush in 1984.

During her campaign, she was known for saying, "Modern life is confusing. Make no Ms.-take about it."

She was also the first Italian-American to run on a major party ticket.

Ferraro was surrounded by her loved ones at Massachusetts General in Boston.

She will be truly missed.
