The Associated Press reports:
Lady Gaga hailed gays on Saturday as the “revolutionaries of love” and called for “full equality now” for same-sex couples around the world in a speech in front of hundreds of thousands in Rome.
The US pop diva criticised governments in Eastern Europe and the Middle East for condemning young people to a life of isolation and discrimination and told the EuroPride rally: “We’re all from the same DNA. We were just born this way.”
“I stand here as a woman of the world and I ask governments, with you, worldwide to facilitate our dream of equality,” said the singer, who wore a Versace dress and a green wig and later performed two of her hit singles.
“Let us be revolutionaries of love and use our very strong human powers to save lives and encourage unity around the world,” she said from a stage in the Circus Maximus — an ancient arena in the heart of Rome.
Organisers estimated the size of the crowd at around one million people.
