Lady Gaga: If You’re Uncomfortable, ‘You’re on the Wrong Side of History’

Lady Gaga joined the bandwagon with Macklemore and Kylie Minogue of having same-sex couples getting engaged on stage last weekend when she invited her friend Jay onstage to propose to his boyfriend.

During her show in Manchester, Gaga asked Jay, who Gaga calls “family and an incredible man and incredible friend,” and his boyfriend Shaun to come on stage. Jay surprised Shaun by getting down on one knee and proposing.

Shaun said ‘Yes’ and Lady Gaga sang “Born This Way” to the newly engaged couple.

“It’s so bizarre, you know, my label a long time ago told me that my show is too gay and I was too gay or this was too gay,” she told the crowd. “I told them, ‘Well it’s a great thing that there are gay people all over the world!’ We’re all human beings with real dreams and real stories and you deserve to love and express your love the same as everybody around the world.”

Gaga added, “I’m pretty sure I don’t have to say this because this is a pretty free-thinking city, but I’m going to f—ing say it anyway: if you are living in the U.K. or in Manchester and whether you are young or old or in the middle, if you are gay, hold your head up high and be proud. You don’t have to hide. You’re human. And if anybody here in the audience, I can’t imagine there is, but if anybody here is uncomfortable with this you should probably f—ing go because you’re on the wrong side of history and everybody in here is on the right side.”

With the passage of marriage equality last year, laws have been quickly changing across the United States. LGBT couples with or without children weren’t just given the right of marriage, they were provided new protections and benefits within their families. All of a sudden, LGBT couples and families had to figure out how to file jointly when it came to taxes, how to add...

Representation of Modern Families in Kid-Friendly Entertainment

By Alex Temblador

I recently wrote an article for The Next Family called, “Family-Friendly Films That Feature Adoption and Foster Care,” that shared wonderful family films with adoption or foster care story lines. My reasoning behind doing so was because every family deserves a chance to see similar families like theirs represented in various forms of entertainment.

The same can be said of other...
