Lady Gaga to Host Gay Rights Gala

Gonna be in New Jersey this weekend? Forget the cast of Jersey Shore, Lady Gaga is going to be the talk of the town!

Gaga is set to host the Hands Up for Marriage Equality benefit gala in Atlantic City, New Jersey on Saturday.

Gaga says in a statement: "I am honored to be able to continue to raise awareness and money for this cause and these outstanding organizations.

"Organizations like these are in the trenches every day working on behalf of all of us whether you are LGBT or straight. Equal and full civil rights are supposed to be for all of us.”

Gaga led a gay rights march through Washington, DC a few months back and she's hoping to use this gala to raise funds for four organizations - Empire State Pride Agenda, Equality Pennsylvania, Garden State Equality, and The Power.

All four organizations work to advocate and empower the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender (LGBT) community efforts. Go Gaga!
