Lady Gaga Unclear About the Difference Between a Gay Pride Parade and a Mariachi Festival

I guess when “ordinary,” non-symbols of gay iconography see people dressed in mariachi outfits and playing loud music, they would assume that, yes, a pride parade was taking place. But when Lady Gaga, one of the so-called connoisseurs of all things homosexual, can’t discern the difference between Mexican flamboyance versus gay flamboyance, well, it’s a little embarrassing.

Putting her love of all things gay on blast by scrawling GAY PRIDE across her torso, Gaga managed to make a mockery of both Mexican and homosexual culture. It’s this sort of laziness that proves many a celebrity just wants to show they’re relevant and semi-give a shit about what’s going on.

While few of Lady Gaga’s own fans seemed to catch on to her mistake, the Chicago Mariachi and Folklórico Festival mockingly posted on their Facebook, “#GagaHasMariachiPride”. If nothing else, at least out of assumption and humiliation, awareness was raised about this underrated festival.
