Lady Gaga expresses her disappointed over Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell filibuster in the United States Senate

lady gagaLady Gaga came into her own as a political activist in recent days with her very visible efforts to repeal the Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell policy that prevents gay and lesbians from serving openly in the military.

Sadly, the U.S. Senate voted 56-43 on Tuesday against a measure that would have allowed debate on the repeal to begin.

Lady Gaga has released this statement expressing her disappointment: “[Tuesday] was an enormous disappointment, for myself, and for many young American people. Not only because don’t ask don’t tell was not repealed by our senators, but moreover because legislative procedure is being abused to stop public business, public debates, from happening while America is watching. There was a debate today, we just didn’t get to watch it. Instead, it has been customary now for antiquated procedures and partisan politics to take precedence over debate, America’s needs, and today, sadly, over the needs of U.S. troops. I will keep fighting, i will not give up. I am passionate about the rights of the LGBT community and SLDN and I will continue to activate as many young people as I can, and encourage them to get politically involved in their future.”
