Charity organization DoSomething.org has named Lady Gaga No. 1 on its new “Top 20 Celebrities Gone Good” list due to her outstanding work as a gay rights activist in the last year.
The pop singer publicly called for the repeal of the US military’s “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” policy months ago, which was signed by President Obama on December 22. She was also very outspoken in her support of same-sex marriage and raised money towards HIV/AIDS prevention worldwide.
Lady Gaga is all about the giving.
The mega-pop star and gay rights activist took top honors in the “Top 20 Celebs Gone Good” list for 2010 compiled by Web site DoSomething.org.
The site credits Gaga with spending much of her time fighting for the repeal of “don’t ask, don’t tell,” while serving as the face of the MAC Viva Glam campaign, with 100 percent of its proceeds going to fight AIDS.
