Lady Gaga Makes Target Gay Friendly

UPDATE: Lady Gaga Ends Target Deal…Read More...
This is another reason we love Lady Gaga. Her new album,
"Born This Way" which comes out in May, not only speaks to
our LGBT community, she has struck a deal with Target that
depends on the company to amend their homophobic ways.
The singer reportedly met with Target’s “entire executive staff”
to convey her expectations for the company before agreeing to
a distribution partnership for her new album. Lady Gaga was
concerned as we all were about Minneapolis-based Target giving
$150,000 in August to support MN Forward. MN Forward is the
political action committee that backed Republican Tom Emmer,
who opposes gay marriage, in his failed 2010 run for Minnesota
governor. Target partnered with Gaga to offer an exclusive edition
of her new album. The deluxe edition includes 3 additional studio
songs & 5 remixes & will be available only at Target.com & stores
nationwide. Fans can preorder the deluxe album until midnight
on Saturday. So if you absolutely have to step into Target, you
can feel less guilty…:)

That discussion (with Target) was one of the most intense conversations I’ve ever had in a business meeting. Part of my deal with Target is that they have to start affiliating themselves with LGBT charity groups and begin to reform and make amends for the mistakes they’ve made in the past. Our relationship is hinged upon their reform in the company to support the gay community and to redeem the mistakes they’ve made supporting those (homophobic) groups.
