Lady Gaga, who resumes her Born This Way Ball on January 11th in Vancouver B.C, has found yet another way to reach out to struggling teens. Already promoting mental health and community through her Born This Way Foundation, which, according to the website, "was founded in 2011 to foster a more accepting society, where differences are embraced and individuality is celebrated, Lady Gaga is providing free counseling on her Born Brave Bus. Fans at her concert will have access to professional private or group chats about mental health, depression, bullying, school and friends. According to Lady Gaga, there will also be food and games; DJ White Shadow and Lady Starlight will DJ with host BREEDLOVE to keep the experience fun.
Known for her love of her “Little Monsters”, as well as for her advocacy on gay issues and teen bullying, Lady Gaga hopes to once again push boundaries. This time she wants to take the shame out of seeking help for mental health issues.
Lady Gaga’s Born Brave Ball will play about 30 North American shows, including Los Angeles on January 20, before the tour ends on March 20 in Tulsa, Oklahoma. While her style may be unorthodox, it supports the underlying theme of her Foundation, which is dedicated to "creating a safe community that helps connect young people with the skills and opportunities they need to build a kinder, braver world. We believe that everyone has the right to feel safe, to be empowered and to make a difference in the world. Together, we will move towards acceptance, bravery and love."
