Lady Gaga took to the stage this weekend with an important passionate message of equality as she attended Euro Pride in the Rome.

The gay rights activist gave an empowering speech on the stage in Rome, as she demanded equality from government bodies to everyday people across the continent to love and not discriminate against gay people.

Sporting outlandish green hair she addressed the crowd with her music including her hit, Born This Way, which has an empowering message of equality.

Speaking to the thousands of people attending, she said: "Today and every day we fight for freedom.

We fight for justice. We beckon for compassion, understanding and above all we want full equality now.

"We have the same DNA. We were just 'born this way'”

After much turmoil in the Continent recently the controversial singer addressed countries that were less accepting of the LGBT community including Russian, Lithuania and also Lebanon, which banded her single Born This Way.

"I am aware that many countries and governments worldwide still restrict their citizens from reading about LGBT (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender) issues and this is what means the most to me in my career. I want all of your stories to be heard by the world.

She finished by shouting from the top of her lungs: "We stand here to demand an end to intolerance.”

Following recent controversy surrounding some of her music’s stance on religion, including current hit ‘Judas’, many Rome officials feared the superstar might verbally criticise Pope Benedict and the Vatican for their stance on homosexuality.

However, on this occasion the singer wasn’t there to cause controversy but to spread an important message and refrained from discussing either in the highly religious city.
