"And now I'm just trying to change the world, one sequin at a time."
More than a fashion icon or creative performer, Lady Gaga is also an activist. Whether or not you are a fan of her music or couture, she is inarguably using her fame as a powerful platform for social justice, giving voice to those whose stories are often silenced, shamed or ignored.
the world offers itself to your imagination,
calls to you like the wild geese, harsh and exciting
over and over announcing your place
in the family of things."
–excerpt from the poem "Wild Geese" by Mary Oliver
