Watch Gaga’s Born This Way Foundation Launch Live Today at 4 PM

Later today Lady Gaga and her mother, Cynthia Germanotta, will officially launch the Born This Way Foundation (BTWF) at Harvard University’s Sanders Theatre — and you can watch a live webcast of the event via the Berkman Center for Internet and Society’s site. It’s a live webcast only, at 4 PM ET, so stay tuned on the Berkman site for more information and the cast.

Special guests at the event include Oprah Winfrey, Deepak Chopra, David Burtka, U.S. Secretary of Health and Human Services Kathleen Sebelius, and Charles Ogletree, Harvard Law School’s Jesse Climenko Professor of Law and Director of the Charles Hamilton Houston Institute for Race and Justice.

Looks like quite an event, and I’m going to tune in.

Cheryl LaGuardia About Cheryl LaGuardia

Cheryl LaGuardia always wanted to be a librarian, and has been one for more years than she's going to admit. She cracked open her first CPU to install a CD-ROM card in the mid-1980's, pioneered e-resource reviewing for Library Journal in the early 90's (picture calico bonnets and prairie schooners on the web...), won the Louis Shores / Oryx Press Award for Professional Reviewing, and has been working for truth, justice, and better electronic library resources ever since. Reach her at, where she's a Research Librarian at Harvard University.
