Lady Gags fights on for us in the Castro San Francisco! Lady Gaga said she would release an exclusive edition of her "Born This Way" album to Target stores if the company makes efforts to support the gay community. The new edition includes remixes and three extra studio songs.

Target previously gave a donation to anti-gay Minnesota politician Tom Emmer. Castro District residents wonder why they would give such a donation. Gaga met with company executives for a conversation where she stressed how supporting the gay community was important to her, her fans, and their partnership. Castro San Francisco loves their continued support from Lady Gaga.

"Part of my deal with Target is that they have to start affiliating themselves with LGBT charity groups and begin to reform and make amends for the mistakes they've made in the past," Gaga told Billboard . "Our relationship is hinged upon their reform in the company to support the gay community and to redeem the mistakes they've made supporting those groups." Here at My Castro we applaud such forward and direct approaches!

Target's vice president of communications, Dustee Jenkins said she appreciated the meeting with Gaga and her team. Jenkins told Billboard that Target is now committed to being more "thoughtful" with their political donations and has made policy changes to include a "policy committee," responsible for overseeing company donations. Supporters of Gaga like us in the Castro District are pleased with Gaga's to the point assault on anti-gay supporters.

Target revised their giving policy before the meeting with Lady Gaga.
