In the middle of her first show on her world tour in Vancouver Tuesday night, Lady Gaga called security. But not for the reason you’d think.

“Security?” she said sweetly on the mic, in the middle of the first show in her Joanne World Tour in Vancouver. “May I have that gay pride flag, please?”

Gaga — who was standing on a stage in the middle of the floor — got her wish, and she was handed that rainbow flag from the audience. Thousands of Little Monsters cheered as the singer posed onstage with the flag.

Then, Gaga took another prop from a fan below her.

“Aw, thank you,” she said to the person who handed her a faux Academy Award. “I thought it was an award for being Lady Gaga.”

Gaga handed the trophy back. The flag, however, she kept, and she put it on her piano bench.

“Needless to say, I have a lot to say about this issue,” Gaga, an outspoken LGBTQ advocate, said. “But the most important thing that I’ve got to say about it, is that everybody’s got to love each other.”

Those familiar with Gaga’s Joanne track list could predict the next song in her set.

“So for any of who don’t believe in equality that are here this evening, Come to Mama.

Gaga continued her show, and the rainbow flag got a few more minutes of glory: A dancer incorporated it into the next number.
