The Legacy of Lady Gaga

Born This Way

I think the precise moment I realised I am not straight was seven months ago, when I felt strongly attracted to a woman.

A house that wasn’t a home. A house that was never filled with the love and eagerness of somebody waiting for me to come back home. But last night changed everything.

Basic Rights

I’ve got the basic right to pee
