Pop goddess Lady Gaga is also an active advocate for gay rights.
In her latest move, she threw her support — via Twitter — behind an OC teen, whose anti-bullying video went viral this week.
In the video, 14-year-old Jonah Mowry of Lake Forest uses notecards to tell his story–a story of being incessantly bullied for being gay and cutting himself as a release from the pain.
The video gained more traction after Lady Gaga tweeted about it twice on Sunday:
Mowry was on Good Morning America today with his family and he says he's been overwhelmed by the support he's received since the video went viral.
A Facebook page called “Jonah Mowry we support you” already has more than 35,000 “likes.” Many people have posted support videos, which thank Jonah via flashcard, in homage to his video.
Asked to give advice to other bullying victims while on Good Morning America, Jonah quoted the slogan of Dan Savage's anti-bullying campaign: “It gets better,” he says.
