A Florida-based anti-gay group said today it has a hired an aircraft to fly a banner over the Tacoma Dome protesting the message of Lady Gaga’s current Born This Way tour. The tour kicks off its American leg today.

The Florida Family Association said the banner will read, “NOT Born this way” and will fly from 1 p.m. until sunset today. Lady Gaga’s Born Brave Bus tour will be set up in the Dome’s parking lot starting at 4 p.m. Read more about that here.

On its website the group asks, “How would you feel if your child or grandchild went to a concert where unbeknownst to you they were convinced to embrace a homosexual or transgender lifestyle for a lifetime?”

The FFA calls Gaga’s bus tour a brainwashing camp. It also says the cost of the plane rental is $1,900 and asks for donations to continue its aerial anti-Gaga campaign at other stops on her tour.
