Lady Gaga kicked off the first night of her “Joanne” world tour with a message for LGBT equality.

While performing in Vancouver, Lady Gaga noticed a rainbow flag off stage on the floor. She asks security to bring her the flag and then holds it up proudly.

“Needless to say, I have a lot to say about this issue,” Lady Gaga says.

“But the most important thing I have to say about it is that everyone’s gotta love each other,” she added quoting her own lyrics. “You gotta stop throwing stones at your sisters and your brothers. Cause it wasn’t that long ago that we were all just living in the jungle.”

The pop star then launched into a performance of her song, “Come to Mama” on the piano with a group of rainbow-clad dancers joining her on stage.

Lady Gaga, who identifies as bisexual, has been a longtime supporter of the LGBT community. One of her more recent displays of solidarity was tweeting President Donald Trump after he announced a ban on transgender people in the military.
