Lady Gaga uses her fame (and Twitter account) to speak out against military’s anti-gay “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell”
Lady Gaga has turned out to be a wonderful LGBT ally and she is using her immense fame to try and make a difference.
After Sunday’s MTV Video Music Awards, she spoke with Ellen DeGeneres in the video above about her campaign to have the military’s anti-gay Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell policy repealed.
“If we call [House of Representatives Majority Leader] Harry Reid in the Senate and tell him to schedule the vote to repeal ‘Don’t ask, don’t tell’ this month, then we can get the bill to the president to sign,” she told Ellen (see video below).
Then earlier today, Lady Gaga tweeted: “Gay Veterans were my VMA dates. Repeal Don’t Ask Don’t Tell. CALL HARRY REID to Schedule Senate Vote.” She included a photo of herself with military service members discharged under DADT who joined her at the MTV awards show.
Lady Gaga is a hero!
