Lady Gaga Says ‘Born This Way’ Was Inspired By A Gay Black Religious Activist As She Celebrates Its 10th Anniversary

Pop singer Lady Gaga has celebrated the 10th anniversary of her second studio album ‘Born This Way’ on Twitter and said that the album was inspired by a gay black religious activist, Carl Bean who preached, sung, and wrote about being ‘Born This Way.’

An official celebration was held in the City of West Hollywood on Sunday to celebrate the 10th anniversary of Lady Gaga’s album. West Hollywood Mayor Lindsey P. Horvath gave the singer the key to the city.

Gaga also took to Twitter to share some special photos from the anniversary on Twitter and detailed how her album came out. She said that she was inspired by a gay black religious activist, Carl Bean while she created ‘Born This Way.’

Here’s what Lady Gaga tweeted:

“Born This Way, my song and album, were inspired by Carl Bean, a gay black religious activist who preached, sung and wrote about being “Born This Way.” Notably his early work was in 1975, 11 years before I was born.

She also thanked her fans and followers who always support her and her works in the music industry or outside of it. She continued:

“Thank you for decades of relentless love, bravery, and a reason to sing. So we can all feel joy, because we deserve joy. Because we deserve the right to inspire tolerance, acceptance, and freedom for all.”
