Lady Gaga and Lance Bass are among the openly LGBT celebrities accepting the ice bucket challenge in support of the ALS Association.

The group's #IceBucketChallenge helps raise awareness and funds to help in the fight to find a cure for Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis, a neurodegenerative disease.

Seated in a black chair, Lady Gaga lifted a large bowl of ice water over her head and poured it over herself. (The video is embedded on this page. Visit our video library for more videos.)

Former 'NSyncer Lance Bass accepted the challenge from Nick Swisher and dared Darren Criss, Joey Fatone and Miranda Sings to follow his lead.

Australian recording artist Iggy Azalea – who recently declared she's not a fake lesbian – accepted the challenge from Jennifer Lopez.

Erin Fleming, associate director of the ALS Association, told The Washington Post that its campaign “has certainly succeeded” in raising awareness and money.

Actor James Franco, a strong ally for gay rights, created a racy video for the challenge. As he got doused in ice water, Franco gyrated a bit holding nothing but a small yellow sign over his private parts. He nominated Zack Braff, Joey King and Keegan Allen to the #IceBucketChallenge.
