Dana International image can be a poster child for Lady Gaga’s Foundation Born this Way . The foundation’s mission consist of create an open space in which individuality can be accepted. Although Dana International predates Lady Gaga’s foundation she excepts who she is and has no problem educating the world on who she is.
I used the world educate because due to censorship in mass media some people are ignorant to the fact that people like Dana International exist. Completely ignoring her talent the media focused on who she was as a person, and what signals that sent to young males. But it did not take long before people recognized her for her true talent.
I appreciate the fact that in the late 90’s Israel was able to get rid of the bias view they had of Dana International. Everyone needs a role model in life, and if the media is censoring everything and holding pure talent back because of ones sexuality many people are left in the dark. Not only would they have been restricting her talent, but her fans would have lost their voice as well.
