To Lady Gaga

Dear Lady Gaga,
I am motivated to write you for a few reasons; your courage to speak out; « Spotlight »; the movie which won the Oscars,
reflects my/our daily work since 16 years ago (within the organization I founded on 1999), called Innocence in Danger);
your wonderful song, which I would love to turn into an anthem for this topic, with your help and last but not least; a
powerful novel that has just been published and my organization’s desire to get the story’s message out to the masses.
Our hope is that this novel may become a movie; a movie as powerful as your song. A story that invites people on an
adventure and gently injects a message of love—but also awakens people to the presence of powerful danger that exists
almost everywhere. I know that most books and movies about human trade and sexual abuse never make it off the shelves
and opened by a reader.
This story is very exciting and most of all inviting. Unbelievably, it is a story that fictionally portrays my life. It was written
by a journalist in the U.S. whom I’ve never met in person; with whom we have had hours of conversations by phone; who
showed care, concern and commitment to this cause; who knows more me than anyone else. How this can happen is a
mystery to both of us.

(My twin sister Golareh (L) and myself – are each portrayed in Illegitimate-Advantage)
About me: I work very hard—every single waking moment for the protection of the innocent souls in the pathway of sexual
predators. Please review my websites for more information about Innocence in Danger. We are in many nations of the
The name of the novel is “Illegitimate-Advantage (Novel 2016 – Amazon) – By Kirk Gollwitzer
I’m hoping and praying for a boost from you; because, quite frankly, you have the power we need to connect to the masses.
I’m contacting you not for money—but simply your voice and your courage.
Also because of the following:
You have been victimized and still have the courage to speak out.
You are a living example of one who survived; and has the world’s attention; your talent and your voice move across
Lady Gaga, so many victims suffer in silence as days turn into years; shattered lives which sometimes shatter other lives or
harm themselves.
The world is a scary place when one’s road cross the path of a vicious predator. Survivors need to find someone/something
to hold on to—because so often; everyone else abandoned them including God in heaven.
I have been that someone for them since 1999—but I (desperately) need your help. I am completely outnumbered, overrun
by the enemy and the code of silence.
Lady Gaga, if you considered helping us boost our movie project and offer your powerful song to Innocence in Danger, our
message will be heard across oceans. In my wish list, we will meet one day, and organize concerts for you in Geneva,
Montreux; Paris, London, New York – our next event is in Paris on April 11 and an event during in Cannes during the film
In France alone we know there are 4 million victims of incest and close to 600 attempted rapes per day.
This is just the tip of the iceberg—especially when the perpetrators trust that most will never talk about what happened to
them. Further those they speak to — DO NOTHING or are silenced.
Lady Gaga, I want them to know that they are not alone!
I want their hearts to know they have found a home with our organization: Innocence in Danger, which includes me and our
devoted teams.
I want survivals to believe that they can let down their guard and let our arms, voices and love shelter them.
Most of them have an immense wish to survive, but many do not. They have lost their will live. Why should they fight any
longer if they believe that it will rain for the remainder of their existence; and the world appears deaf? With your help we
will show them that the world around them, in fact hears them, and even more, will help.
I want to send a wave of love to all survivals who have difficulty accepting to be loved –
The shame has to change camps/sides
Their trust and self-confidence are damaged – but we know it can all be restored if our societies learn to have a healing eye
towards them – Lady Gaga; you can make this happen
I am fully aware that it takes only a few words of support, caring and love from you for something so magical to happen.
The dim light in their soul soon becomes a flame so bright that they may find their way home.
As an NGO, I am doing everything I can….but I desperately need your voice of power, passion and beauty such as you
possess. Time is ticking, it cannot wait.
I humbly ask that you read this novel. I ask that you to hold the book in your hands and receive it into your heart—because
there you might find me.
Perpetrators, collaborators, bystanders, victims: we can be clear about three of these categories. The bystander, however, is
the fulcrum. If there are enough notable exceptions, then protest reaches a critical mass. We don’t usually think of history as
being shaped by silence, but, as English philosopher Edmund Burke said, ‘The only thing necessary for the triumph [of evil]
is for good men to do nothing; please help us.
I leave my hopes in your hands & thank you for your time.
Sincerely yours,
Homayra Sellier
Founder and President of Innocence in Danger.
