Lady Gaga paid a virtual visit to a Toronto High School today to thank the students of Etobicoke’s School of the Arts for their efforts to end bullying against gay and lesbian students. After student council president Jacques St. Pierre sent a letter to Gaga asking for her support of their recently held equality assembly, the pop singer responded with a personalized video.
In the clip Gaga says “I just wanted to tell you how proud I am of you for being such a strong advocate for the LGBT (lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender) community in your school. There should be more little monsters like you.” The video was played at an assembly this morning and was a surprise for the student body. The initial equality assembly was held after Jamie Hubley, an openly gay high school student in Ottawa, took his own life after relentless bullying because of his sexuality. In her video, Gaga spoke about New York teen Jamey Rodemeyer, who also took his life becasue of bullying he suffered from being gay.
It’s beyond exciting to hear about schools taking part in this kind of education and kudos to Gaga for all her support. You can view the video of the singer below.Tweet
