Today we remember Jamey Rodemeyer (March 21st, 1997 – September 18th, 2011)
3 years ago today, 14-year-old Jamey committed suicide as a result of the relentless bullying he experienced. ‘Out’ as bisexual and a dedicated activist against homophobia, he was a huge Lady Gaga fan, and sent his last tweet directly to her. A few days later, she dedicated her song, “Hair” to him — a Little Monster lost far too early.
To commemorate Jamey and others like him, please reblog as a reminder to be kind and brave, to support one another, and to love yourself.

-Born This Way Intro-
"This is the manifesto of Mother Monster: On G.O.A.T, a Government Owned Alien Territory in space, a birth of magnificent and magical proportions took place. But the birth was not finite. It was infinite. As the wombs numbered and the mitosis of the future began, it was perceived that this infamous moment in life is not temporal, it is eternal. And thus began the beginning of the new race, a race within the race of humanity, a race which bares no prejudice, no judgment but boundless freedom. But on that same day, as the eternal mother hovered in the mulit-verse, another more terrifying birth took place, the birth of evil.
And as she herself split into two. Rotating in agony between two ultimate forces, the pendulum of choice began its dance. It seems easy you imagine to gravitate instantly and unwaveringly towards good. But she wondered: How can I protect something so perfect without evil?”
