This Saturday, Rome hosts a Gay Pride parade unlike any other — because the famous Lady Gaga will be in attendance.
Unless you've been living under a rock for the past couple of years, you know that this is a very. Big. Deal. For Rome, and for gay pride worldwide.
Want to see Gaga? Then be at Circus Maximus this Saturday afternoon, where Rome's annual Gay Pride parade ends. (The parade starts at 4pm at Viale Enrico de Nicola, then heads down Via Cavour to Via dei Fori Imperiali and the Colosseum).
And if anyone asks what's wrong with you, spending your time in Rome looking for an American celebrity, you know what to tell them: "Baby, I was born this way."
Update: I've posted the Youtube video, above, of Gaga performing her two (beautiful and way-slowed-down) songs at Circus Maximus. And here's Gaga's 15-minute speech on gay rights.
