The pageant owner Michael Dutzer shared a photo of him crowning Gaga, along with the caption: ‘First we would like to wish @ladygaga the best as she recovers from an injury.
‘On Sept 10 we presented Lady Gaga with a Miss Gay America crown, making her the first honorary Miss Gay America.’
The caption continued: ‘We love Gaga for all she’s done for the LGBTQ community, especially our youth, so we thought this would be a great way to honor her for championing self-acceptance, diversity and the beauty in everyone’s mirror.’
Michael ended: ‘Along with the crown, we made a donation to the @btwfoundation on behalf of the Miss Gay America organization.’

Lady Gaga – real name Stefani Joanne Angelina Germanotta – was scheduled to perform in Europe from September 21 to October 28, but will resume the tour in early 2018.
The LGBTQ activist revealed in her Netflix Documentary, Gaga: Five Foot Two, that she suffers chronic pain due to Fibromyalgia.
The Mayo Clinic reports that the illness is a ‘disorder characterized by widespread musculoskeletal pain accompanied by fatigue, sleep, memory and mood issues.’
In Lady Gaga’s new documentary she is seen performing on stage full of life, but in reality she is in pain and only getting through her painful performance because of her cheering fans.

In mid-September Gaga wrote an open letter to fans that she posted on her Instagram.
The Grammy-award winner wrote: ‘I have always been honest about my physical and mental health struggles.
‘Searching for years to get to the bottom of them. It is complicated and difficult to explain, and we are trying to figure it out. As I get stronger and when I feel ready, I will tell my story in more depth, and plan to take this on strongly so I can not only raise awareness, but expand research for others who suffer as I do, so I can help make a difference.’
The Mother Monster continues: ‘I use the word “suffer” not for pity, or attention, and have been disappointed to see people online suggest that I’m being dramatic, making this up, or playing the victim to get out of touring.
‘If you knew me, you would know this couldn’t be further from the truth. I’m a fighter,’ Gaga explains, ‘I use the word suffer not only because trauma and chronic pain have changed my life, but because they are keeping me from living a normal life. They are also keeping me from what I love the most in the world: performing for my fans.’
The Bad Romance songstress ends with: ‘I am looking forward to touring again soon, but I have to be with my doctors right now so I can be strong and perform for you all for the next 60 years or more. I love you so much.’
Besides being a devoted musician, the singer is also a long-time LGBTQ activist since the early days of her career (Pictured June 2016)
Besides being a devoted musician, the singer is also a long-time LGBTQ activist since the early days of her career.
Lady Gaga has not only written songs about acceptance but also launched her own nonprofit anti-bullying organization to fight for the rights of the LGBTQ community.
The blonde beauty has shared multiple times that she supports anyone who doesn’t fit in, which is the reason she calls her fans ‘monsters’.
