Recording artist Lady Gaga is facing backlash for featuring trans activist Dylan Mulvaney in celebration of International Women’s Day on Friday.

The 37-year-old singer shared photos and a video with Mulvaney, where Gaga can be heard saying, “I’m putting you on my vision board, for life,” and Mulvaney, a transgender woman, responding, “I love you.”

Gaga repeats, “Put this on your vision board,” in the video.

According to The Daily Mail, it appears that the duo was engaged in a photoshoot for Haus Labs, Lady Gaga’s cosmetic brand, as well as the pharmaceutical company Clinuvel.

Comments on the post were inundated with followers expressing frustration that a man was being highlighted on a day dedicated to women.

“One commenter on Instagram remarked, ‘Isn’t Women’s Day for women? Lol just another case of some… creep male trying to take one more thing from women.’

Another account commented, ‘This is so degrading to REAL women.’

A third commenter agreed, stating, ‘Why’s Dylan representing? He’s ‘NOT’ a woman. What an insult to us ‘REAL’ women. Quit invading our territory.'”


Lady Gaga, also known as Stefani Germanotta, has long been a vocal advocate for the LGBTQ community. In a 2017 interview with Out Magazine, she expressed gratitude towards the LGBTQ community, stating, “When I started in the mainstream it was the gays that lifted me up. I committed myself to them and they committed themselves to me, and because of the gay community I’m where I am today.”

She further emphasized her desire to integrate gay culture into mainstream society, saying, “I very much want to inject gay culture into the mainstream. It’s not an underground tool for me. It’s my whole life. So I always sort of joke the real motivation is to just turn the world gay.”

Meanwhile, Mulvaney gained recognition after creating the TikTok series “Days of Girlhood” to document his journey of transitioning from a man to a woman.

Mulvaney gained national recognition following their involvement in a promotion for the beer brand Bud Light last April. The parent company, Anheuser-Busch, reportedly faced significant financial losses, estimated to exceed one billion dollars, due to boycotts from conservative groups protesting their partnership with the influencer who identifies as transgender.
