Lady Gaga’s Gay Anthem “Born This Way” Is Here!

Lady Gaga’s Gay Anthem “Born This Way” Is Here!

Lady Gaga’s master class in knowing your target audience continued this morning as she released her long-awaited single “Born This Way.” This isn’t one of those misleading song titles either – make no mistake, “Born This Way” is capital-G Gay Gay Gay.

Listen to Lady Gaga’s new single “Born This Way” here!

Listeners will quickly notice Gaga’s channeling of Madonna here. Try singing the chorus to “Express Yourself” during the chorus to “Born This Way.” Fits like a sequined glove!

She doesn’t mince words either.

I’m beautiful in my way,

‘Cause God makes no mistakes

I’m on the right track baby

I was born this way

Or how about this line: Don’t be a drag, just be a queen. And from the last verse:

No matter gay, straight, or bi

Lesbian, transgendered life

I’m on the right track baby

I was born to survive

In case no one heard her the first time, Gaga repeats the phrase “born this way” 23 times throughout the song. Multiply that by the 500,000 times we’re going to hear this song over the next six months and I think it’s clear. This thing will so be pumping at Top Gun Tom’s summer home in Fire Island.

Nevertheless, it’s bound to give strength to millions of LGBT youth and adults throughout the world. Kudos to Gaga for yet again standing by us and being such a strong voice for our rights.

So what do you think about “Born This Way”? Where does it rank with other gay anthems?
