Pop singer Lady Gaga is pushing hard to bring attention to the military’s “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” policy.
Within the last week, Gaga took several former members of the military who were discharged, or resigned, because of DADT to the MTV Music Video Awards. The singer has also taken to Twitter to discuss the policy with politicians like Senators Harry Reid and Kirsten Gillibrand and yesterday put together an impassioned video on YouTube calling on the Senate to address the issue.
Isn’t it great to have such a prominent public figure taking a stand? With the Senate expected to vote on the measure as part of the 2011 Defense Authorization Bill, do you think Lady Gaga is actually be making a difference?
