Sitting atop a piano, she strummed her guitar and sang a stripped-down version of her single. Sporting a high ponytail, she wore a T-shirt and jeans along with Converse shoes.

“I’m here today not because I had to excruciatingly pull time out of my schedule to come be here. I’m here because I want to be here. And I’m here because I want this to affect other people around the world, and to remind them that when they are kind, it not only makes the other person feel good, but it makes me feel good too,” Gaga said.

Singer Madonna also visited the center. She was joined by her children Mercy and David. (IANS)

A group of LGBTQ YouTubers are reportedly suing the video-sharing platform and its parents firm Google over poor moderation of “hate” content and unfairly restricting the videos of LGBTQ creators.

According to a lawsuit filed on Tuesday in the US District Court for the Northern District of California, since 2016, YouTube and Google have indulged in “unlawful content regulation, distribution, and monetisation practices that stigmatise, restrict, block, demonetise, and financially harm the LGBTQ+ Plaintiffs and the greater LGBTQ+ Community”, a report in the CNET on Wednesday.

“They flagged our pride. They did not allow us to buy ads. They restricted us. They demonetized us. And they did not stand up for us,” a YouTuber posted in a video to the site to announce the lawsuit, the report added.

The creators include Bria Kam and Chrissy Chambers of BriaAndChrissy.

Chrissy Chambers of BriaAndChrissy is a channel aimed at LGBTQ viewers that claimed that YouTube unfairly marked their videos as restricted, thus, limiting who could view them and how much money they could make out of it.
