Drag queen Sherry Vine is making a career out of spoofing Lady Gaga's videos, but her latest parody has a serious message.
Vine's "You're a Homo" song and video mimics Gaga's homoerotic clip for her single "Alejandro." Instead of poking fun at Gaga's slinky male dancers, Vine points out the damaging effects of the closet. Specifically, Vine "outs" antigay politicians like former Idaho senator Larry Craig and blames closeted conservatives for bringing about hate crimes, including the murder of Matthew Shepard.
