Sexual Assault Survivors Join Lady Gaga During Performance At 88th Academy Awards

Sexual assault survivors joined Lady Gaga on stage during a powerful and emotionally charged performance of her Oscar-nominated song “Til It Happens To You”.

The piece was written for the documentary film, “The Hunting Ground”, an expose of sexual assault crime and cover-ups on US College campuses. Doug Fierberg is featured in the film discussing legal issues victims encounter on campus.

Gaga was introduced by Vice President Joe Biden who spoke about The White Houses’ It’s On Us campaign to keep men and women safe from sexual assault.

Lady Gaga was raped as a teenager and kept it secret for seven years, opening up about the assault to SiriusXM host, Howard Stern last December:

“I didn’t know how to think about it. I didn’t know how to accept it. I didn’t know how to not blame myself or think it was my fault. It’s something that really changed my life. It changed who I was completely. It changed my body, it changed my thoughts.”
