Lady Gaga and the Born This Way Foundation

Photo: Credit KCSPresse / Splash NewsWhen someone uses their celebrity to help address one of my pet issues, it makes me feel good. That they use their pull and tap into their fanbase to raise awareness about the issue, such as bullying, it gives me hope that something positive will come out of it. Lady Gaga made a point of meeting with President Obama after the suicide of Jamey Rodemeyer to discuss the bullying epidemic, which made me believe she was serious about making a difference. And sure enough, she is launching the Born This Way Foundation in conjunction with her mother, the MacArthur Foundation, The California Endowment, and Berkman.

While there is not much to see yet about the Born This Way Foundation, you can sign up on the landing page. The tag line is Empowering Youth -- Inspiring Bravery -- both lofty goals. And the meat of the page:

THIS WAY, TOWARDS BRAVERY WHERE YOUTH ARE EMPOWERED. THIS WAY, TOWARDS ACCEPTANCE WHERE HUMANITY IS EMBRACED. THIS WAY, TOWARDS LOVE WHERE INDIVIDUALITY IS ENCOURAGED.

Lady Gaga my hat is off to you. Keep up the good work.
