Remember Lady Gaga? She's back, bitches — and she still knows where her bread is buttered.

After showing her support of last week's historic SCOTUS rulings on Twitter, the pop icon made a special appearance at NYC's Gay Pride kick-off rally, held Friday at Pier 26.

“This is our night and now we can marry it if we want to,” she said, serving realness realness for the enthusiastic crowd. “We are not a niche. We are part, a big giant part of humanity. It’s time for us to be mainstream. I demand the rights! To safe streets!”

She capped off her speech, in which she gave shout-outs to Edie Windsor and Cher, with an a cappella rendition of "The Star-Spangled Banner" given a queer tweak: "Oh say, does our star-spangled flag of pride yet wave."

Check out a clip of her performance below.
