Lady Gaga raises awareness of young activists’ voices in her new book, Channel Kindness: Stories of Kindness and Community, out now.
Gaga teamed up with her mother, Cynthia Germanotta, to share the collection of stories from young leaders who have prevailed in the face of adversity and found the strength to share what they’ve gone through.
“This book is about the power of that kindness to tell your own story, to inspire someone, to help them feel less alone,” Gaga said in an interview with ABC’s Good Morning America.
The book was created with Gaga’s nonprofit Born This Way Foundation. Germanotta, who co-founded the organization with her daughter and currently acts as its president, spoke about the benefit of giving young change makers a place to share their stories.
During the interview, Gaga also said that wearing a mask is an act of kindness, in the sense that it prevents you from infecting others. “I think wearing a mask is a sign of respect,” said Gaga.
