YESTERDAY (2/29) at HARVARD UNIVERSITY, LADY GAGA and her mother, CYNTHIA GERMANOTTA, officially unveiled BORN THIS WAY FOUNDATION, a new non-profit charitable organization. The day opened with OPRAH interviewing LADY GAGA about her commitment to empowering youth before a packed audience at SANDERS THEATRE. LADY GAGA then took the stand in a mock trial to testify before a panel of expert "judges" about what she hopes to accomplish with BTWF.
"The culture of love is not going to change overnight but youth are the answer to creating a braver, kinder world," said LADY GAGA. "This might be one of the best days of my life."
BTWF will address issues like self-confidence, well-being, anti-bullying, mentoring and career development through research, education and advocacy.
