  1. Last night I was at the Monster Ball in Hartford, Connecticut and she talked extensively about the SLDN and the need to repeal DADT. Hearing 15,000 people loudly boo John McCain for his threat to filibuster the repeal was pretty spectacular. She told the audience what the number to call Congress was and what to do/say when you called. She even dedicated "Speechless" to Senators Lieberman and Dodd for their support of the repeal, changing up some of the lyrics to shit on McCain some more/emphasize the need for full equality. At one point she stopped playing and hung up a sign with the number for Congress and told the audience that she would play quietly if anyone wanted to call during the show!

    It was an incredible night from an incredible performer. God bless Gaga!!

    I also think it is a rather convenient gay platform to stand upon as it is obvious we are pretty close to abolishing the policy.

    It's because the policy is so close to being repealed that it's important to make a strong push like this, to try to make sure to end this NOW.

    I think Lady Gaga is shamelessly using DADT for self-promotion, and to ingratiate herself with Gay fans. I thought her appearance with Gay vets at the VMAs and subsequent Tweet made it really obvious.

    She is actively collaborating with the SLDN. She's making an effort to be a good advocate. She's doing it right, not just giving lip service for her own publicity.

    America should be so lucky. Have you ever heard of the Sacred Band of Thebes? They were considered the shield and sword of the ancient Greek city of Thebes, warriors without parallel, and unbreakable because of the love they bore for each other. That's right, the most celebrated elite army in the ancient world was made entirely of pairs of male lovers.

  11. As a Vietnam vet, I find Lady GaGa's supposed support of "Don't Ask Don't Tell" absolutely offensive. She is an untalened hack that is using the gay community to make money. Why are we so gullable as a group? Madonna and Elizabeth Taylor are TRUE gay icons who spoke out against injustice when their careers could have been ruined.

  13. This is more than either Madonna or Kylie have ever done for LGBT rights.
