Lady Gaga will host a benefit gala for gay marriage tomorrow evening.

The singer, who has just been nominated for a GLAAD award, said she was “honoured” to be chosen to help the cause.

The Hands Up for Marriage Equality event in Atlantic City, New Jersey, will raise money for four organisations fighting for equal marriage rights; Empire State Pride Agenda, Equality Pennsylvania, Garden State Equality and The Power.

Gaga said in a statement; “I am honoured to be able to continue to raise awareness and money for this cause and these outstanding organisations.

“Organisations 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.”

The star has said before that everything about her is “gay” and has been keen to thank her gay fans for their support.

Recently, she reportedly threw a drink over a man in a club after he made homophobic remarks about her friend Adam Lambert.
