Over the weekend, Lady Gaga promised to head down to D.C. for this Sunday’s Equality March. At New York City’s Bootleg party, Gaga announced:
Listen, next week is the gay pride march. And I know that I’m going to be there marching with all of you. And the most exciting thing tonight is that we’re all here together. And you can sign up at a table here to get a ticket on a free bus to D.C. So, you have no excuse. And if the buses are all filled up, there’s tons of other ways to get there . . . And there’s really no excuse for you not to go.
I was thinking to myself, ‘If everyone in this room were to go and bring 10 friends—-which I don’t think is a lot to ask because you all have lots of friends—-just from this one night, there would be 10,000 more people marching. . . I really believe in this cause, and as a woman in pop music, I think that this is really an important weekend, and it’s not a fucking joke. So, get your asses to D.C. and wear something fabulous. And I’ll see you guys there, I love you so much.”
And if those 10,000 people make good on the promise of wearing something Gaga approved, that means that the march is going to have 10,000 more sexy limo drivers sporting outrageous hair-bows but no pants. No shirts, either. Where do I sign up?
