From her crazy stage show to her hit songs, Gaga is one of the most important gay icons of all time. She has been an supporter of the LGBT community since the start of her career and even started the LGBT foundation, Born This Way. She has been vocal about her support of the community and truly was the first pop star to really talk about gay rights and issues. Gaga we all love you!
