Dylan Mulvaney and Lady Gaga spark backlash over international women’s day pics

Transgender influencer Dylan Mulvaney and popstar Lady Gaga have sparked backlash for a joint International Women’s Day post.

The pair posed for a photoshoot together, the singer sitting on a wooden crate with enormous platform heels, while Mulvaney stood behind her.

Both wore black, Gaga in a long woolen dress and Mulvaney in a short dress adorned with sequins and tassels at the bottom, along with black stockings.

‘I’m putting you on my vision board, for life,’ Gaga said to Mulvaney, to which the transgender woman replied: ‘I love you’.

‘Put this on your vision board, world, we love you,’ Gaga continued in a video clip posted to Instagram with the photos.

They appeared to be at an event with Haus Labs, Lady Gaga’s cosmetic brand, and pharmaceutical company Clinuvel.

Mulvaney also posted a photo with Lady Gaga’s mother, Cynthia Germanotta and one of her name stitched on to a napkin as a table placing.

Online trolls were quick to descend on Mulvaney’s Instagram post, hurling abuse and calling her and even Lady Gaga, who was born a woman, ‘men’.

‘This is so degrading to REAL women,’ one wrote.

‘I actually see two men,’ another responded, and a third added ‘two men cannot represent a real Queen’.

Yet another claimed they were ‘two women born as men’ and ‘shout out to all the real women! Not men playing dress up’.

‘Why’s Dylan representing. He’s ‘NOT’ a woman. What an insult to us ‘REAL’ women. Quit invading our territory.’
