Lady Gaga's new hit "Born This Way" is all about accepting yourself, and it's a lesson with which the members of the New Directions will soon become very well acquainted.

The FOX hit "Glee' will air a special hour and a half, Gaga-inspired episode on April 26th, The Hollywood Reporter relays. The trade magazine says that glee club leader Mr. Schuester "will teach the glee club about self-acceptance and self-expression through Gaga songs."

The show and singer are a good match; "Glee" boasts a diverse cast with minorities, wheelchair-bound singers and openly gay characters, while Gaga has been outspoken in her devotion to civil rights and self-expression. Last fall, she campaigned for the end of "Don't Ask, Don't Tell," and in March, she ended a deal with retailer Target over their support of anti-LGBT candidates.

"Glee" has sold millions of albums composed of their covers of other artists' music. During their Super Bowl episode, they famously covered Katy Perry's "California Gurls."
