A gay activist and author has called pop singer Lady Gaga “evil” for her support of gay rights.

Ryan Conrad is the editor of Against Equality: Queer Critiques of Gay Marriage, a collection of articles that argue against gay marriage.

Speaking at Georgetown University, Conrad railed against mainstream gay and lesbian politics, the university's weekly the Georgetown Voice reported.

“What does marriage do for us?” he asked.

“By pulling on our heartstrings and appealing to equality, many of us have been duped into the gay marriage debate. People are dying because they can't get access to health care and you're talking about marriage as a battle to end all battles; it's a huge distraction.”

Conrad's book is a collection of essays from mostly bloggers who argue that the gay community should create its own vision of family and celebrate our differences.

“People talk about inclusion, inclusion, inclusion,” Conrad told attendees. “But it's really about transformation, transformation, transformation.”

He also took a swipe at “the platform of Lady Gaga,” who has advocated for the legalization of gay marriage, the end of “Don't Ask, Don't Tell,” the law bans gay and bisexual troop from serving openly, and the passage of gay inclusive hate crimes legislation.

Conrad added “Lady Gaga is evil.”
