There’s a reason Lady Gaga has more youtube views than, to paraphrase and update John Lennon’s infamous boast, Jesus Christ Himself. [Click those links for a few of her most popular videos]

But she’s about more than record sales (or, these days, downloads). She’s tight with the GLBTQ community, and a passionate advocate when it comes to equality.

Bonus, on SNL:

Finally, President Obama’s speech at the Human Rights Dinner mentioned in the Towleroad video above.

  1. She definitely about more than record sales–in fact, her music (which, let's face it, is formulaic disco) is the least interesting thing about her. Her costumes and videos are bringing avant-garde art into the mainstream, and now she's doing the same thing for gay rights. Way to go, Gaga!
