10. Lady Gaga

Lady Gaga has been on our queer radar for a long time, but she gained global notoriety in 2008 when she swept onto the scene with her bestselling album The Fame, which included popular singles “Poker Face” (a song about her bisexuality) and “Just Dance”. In 2009, her follow-up album, The Fame Monster, included chart toppers “Telephone” and “Bad Romance.” And this year, Gaga will release her “gay anthem” album, Born This Way. She was Billboard‘s Artist of the Year in 2010, and the top selling artist of the year as well.

Lady Gaga credits the gay community with her commercial success, and she has been unflagging in her reciprocal support. Not only has she advocated for marriage equality and the revocation of DADT; Gaga also performed at the National Equality March in 2009, and spoke at the Servicemembers Legal Defense Network’s DADT rally in 2010. Most recently, Gaga put the breaks on an exclusive deal with Target after the company didn’t live up to her expectations with regards to charitable giving and the LGBT community. Lady Gaga seems to be ubiquitous in the world of entertainment, and that’s just fine with us. Every time she speaks, she does her Little Monsters proud.
