The 10 Best Quotes From Lady Gaga’s Stonewall Pride Speech

Lady Gaga has made an epic speech full of love and gratitude for the LGBTQ+ community at Pride Live’s Stonewall Day concert in New York City. The superstar spoke about kindness, courage and acceptance.

Here are 10 of her best quotes:


“You were born this way and you are superstars!”


“I surrender to all hatred because you know what? I will kill it with kindness. True, 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.” 


“I will continue to fight everyday, during shows, even when I’m not on stage, to spread a message that’s actually quite simple: Be kind!”


“This community has fought and continues to fight a war of acceptance, a war of tolerance and the most relentless bravery. You are the definition of courage, do you know that?”


“If we keep injecting the world with this message of unity and passion, imagine where we’ll be in another 50 years from today!” 


“I will not stop in pursuit of this liberation. I wish to see no more homeless youth from this community. I denounce ostracising people for who they are. I wish for there to be mental health provided around the country to teach people the importance of kindness, compassion, every race, every religion, every colour, every age.”


“It used to be unheard of to even come out of the closet or to be expected in any way to declare who you are. But now, children at very young ages are saying ‘Mommy or Daddy, I’m gay. I’m a lesbian. Mommy or Daddy, I’m bi.’ They’re saying, ‘Mommy or Daddy I’m not a girl, I’m a boy.’ They’re saying ‘I’m not a boy, I’m a girl.’ They are telling their friends how to identify and speak to them.”


“You are strong. You are so strong! You welcomed me into your community in the most beautiful of ways that I will never forget. My whole life changed because of you.”


“What is your pronoun? ….You deserve to be addressed as you feel comfortable, respected and loved. “


“You are the ultimate power and you have never been so visible in the world! And that beautiful light and that rainbow is shining all around you. Stand in it. Bask in it. Allow yourself to glow in it as we grow. Take that spotlight, it belongs to you.”
