Lady Gaga was presented with the Trevor Project's Hero Award on Dec. 4 at the Hollywood Palladium.

"This means more to me than any Grammy I could ever win," Lady Gaga said in accepting the award from the family of Jamey Rodemeyer, a 14-year-old Buffalo, NY freshman who committed suicide 11 weeks ago.
