On October 9th, 2012, in Reykjavik, Iceland, Yoko Ono will present Lady Gaga with the Biennial LENNONONO GRANT FOR PEACE Award for her LGBT activism.

“LADY GAGA is one of the biggest living artists of our time,” Yoko says, and that “she is not only an artist, she is also an activist, using her art to bring better communication to the world. She is being acknowledged for her activism, and how her album “Born This Way” has widely changed the mental map of the world. And how it has made us deal with the future world, which happens to be here already.”

Lady Gaga will accept the award in person, and accept a charitable donation that she will in turn gift to the Elton John AIDS Foundation to support their work combating HIV among disadvantaged youth in the U.S.

Other reciepents of this award are Rachel Corrie, John Perkins, Christopher Hitchens, and Pussy Riot. Read more about the award here.
