GaGa Wants YOU! The Lady To Hold 'Don't Ask, Don't Tell' Rally Today In Maine

| Filed under: Legal MattersInspirationLady GaGa

For those of you who haven't seen it yet, check out the video (above) to see GaGa's message advocating the repeal of the Don't Ask, Don't Tell policy!

Would U like to help Lady GaGa fight the cause right alongside her? Here are the details of a rally to attend, if you're available, which will be led by the Servicemembers Legal Defense Network as well as Lady GaGa herself!

Servicemembers Legal Defense Network (SLDN) will be holding a grassroots rally with young people near the University of Southern Maine campus on Monday, September 20, 2010, at 4:00 p.m. ET, at Deering Oaks Park, Portland, ME, in a major Senate push to break the expected filibuster by Sen. John McCain of the National Defense Authorization Act, to which repeal is included. The key U.S. Senate vote is scheduled for 2:15 p.m. on Tuesday. Keep updated on Twitter with the hashtag: #4the14k

If you're unavailable, the SLDN is asking you to call the Capitol switchboard (202) 224-3121 and say the following:

–Tell your senators to vote with Sen. Reid and Sen. Carl Levin in opposing the filibuster, defeat amendments to strike repeal, and defeat any crippling amendments.

–Senators should follow the lead of Sen. Carl Levin who will be managing the defense bill.

–It is critical that the vote on “final passage” takes place before senators leave for the election recess.

Will U join GaGa in her effort to repeal Don't Ask, Don't Tell?

    maybe if her eyebrows matched her hair and she took interviews seriously by taking off her eyewear, I'd consider it……..if she wasn't such a caricature maybe people would take her more seriously……food for thought………

    I wish this site would sometimes show both sides of the argument. Not only do I think this bill has some questionable things tagged onto it, but I was talking to some gay servicemen online and I can understand why some gay people are opposed to this switch. See the thing Perez hasn't said on here that DADT was mandated after the brutal death of a private who was killed by fellow soldiers because he was gay and some gay people believe that without this law they will see more brutality like that. It's sad, but as someone once said tolerance is not taught overnight no matter how much we wish it were and if it were the KKK wouldn't still have groups around the US. I know racism of all kinds goes back and forth, but it's sad, but still something we have to deal with. This will be interesting to see what will happen. I know some straight men who will beat gay men if they were near them and it's not that I like these men at all it's just I happen to know they have extreme homophobia and it is worrisome. Well either way this is another point in history should be interesting.

    “I do not oppose or support the repeal of ‘Don’t Ask Don’t Tell’ at this time,” said McCain, in a statement released September 16, “but I do oppose taking legislative action prior to the completion of a real and thorough review of the law.”

  6. 6

    And April 20th…in saying you wouldn't support her because of the amount of make up she wears or the color of her eyebrows just concretes the idea that you are judging her based on what she looks like, which in turn demonstrates how shallowly you think and how immature your thoughts are. And WildOrchard, I agree that there are two sides for every story, and I agree that without DADT there might be more violence. We must work in conjunction. We must take DADT to the next level, repeal it, and replace it with something that protects the gay and lesbian community, without nullifying their services as well as allowing them to be discharged without their pensions amongst other things. Repealing DADT allows those who cause the violence to be punished for their actions, not those who have done nothing wrong in their service of our country. I would agree that (hopefully) GaGa is also arguing for things to still protect the gay community without taking away their rights.

    Sooo tired of her. you are going to ruin her career like you did that "popstar" kid…gosh, don't even remember his name.

  8. 8

    I am so sick & tired of hearing about this stripper whore.
    I hope the bitch dies of a coke overdose.

    Re: shortyj1904 – like I already said "if she wasn't such a caricature maybe people would take her more seriously" - I don't take what bugs bunny says seriously and I won't take a woman that wears a lobster on her head seriously either………her and her husband, mario should stick to what they know - entertainment.

    Tired of her ussing gays for her own good.

  11. 11

    gaga sucks. no

  12. ST-80 says – reply to this


    Re: WildOrchid1298 – There are indeed some straight men who are so homophobic they'll turn violent when in the company of gay men, but the solution to such a scenario isn't to hide the identities of the gay men.. then you're allowing the homophobic crowd to direct things. Whatever the solution is must include equal rights for all involved, period. No one should be made to hide/lie for fear of abuse.

  13. 13

    How about we leave this to people in the military to decide. Its their business after all. Not only that I feel like DADT is protecting gay people from potential violence.
    My boyfriend who is a 1st LT. in the army agrees that this isn't really anyone's business except those who are directly affected by it. He is not homophobic what-so-ever but understands its a "boys club" and some guys are not so nice. The law is not saying that gay people cannot serve. But I understand revising the law.
    Not only that but your sexual pref. should not really be displayed at all while in uniform- gay or straight. Their job is to fight and protect this country. I asked my boyfriend if him and his friends talk about girlfriends/wives and he said never when they are in uniform because that's unprofessional. So really this shouldn't even come up.

    I'm going to this rally this afternoon its going to be amazing! people call her weird and whatever, but does she not turn heads? Do people not look? Obviously she's not stupid she knows what she's doing and I think she's using her fame in a great way. Sure she has some pretty lavish costumes that I'm sure cost $ but she's putting herself out there and not just writing a check to a cause she's obviously very passionate in what she does. You don't see many other celebrities using their status or power and putting in to good use, there's only a handful.

  15. 15

    The Senate doesn't even care what the average working woman thinks on a day to day basis, what makes her think they're going to listen to some glorified club scene showgirl at best? Talk about conceited.

    That's just a couple of blocks from my apartment… I'll definitely go, but what will I wear? All of my meat is in the freezer!

  18. 18

    Join GaGa?You're fucking delusional.

  19. baby says – reply to this


    since the meat dress, i have lost all respect for her. i think maybe she is a lil psychotic to do such a thing, maybe she should go to see how they slaughter those lil animals, she should be ashamed.

    The fact that Gaga has no respect for The Fight For Animal Rights but always brings up Gay Rights really makes me disappointed. I really used to luv Gaga but the more i learn about her n read what she has 2 say it really turns me off from her. N be4 people start tellin me she doesnt have to support animal rights I understand that but then I dont have to respect her. When she came out I thought she was a cool girl reminded me of Xtina Aguilera a lil and I thought she was mocking fame while dressing in cool fashions. Then I realized she is seriously consumed in herself and her image..she just comes off a lil fake now n confused..i love gay people n hope that we find a resolution 2 all the madness 1 day…

  21. 21

    Already have! ~copies number and message~ And will again! DADT is almost as ridiculous as gay marriage bans. If government can separate from religion they should keep their big nosey noses out of sexual preference as well.

  22. 22

    Re: TaylorTea
    Exactly!!! Gaga should be smart and respectful enough to make a movement where the military has a vote on this, not civilians. WE are not the ones who have to live around that daily. They are, and they can't just get out of their enlistment, they have to stay in. They have to live with it. Military life is stressful as it is, and it hurts our soldiers when people are more worried about these rules than their safety, yes… even gay and lesbians soldiers.

    I believe they should be able to stay in and be openly gay, because they are serving our country. They are willing to die like the rest of the military. But there's a lot of homophobes in the military, not all… and maybe not to THAT extent, but there's a lot of people who are very religious -and you can imagine why- that don't believe in homosexuality. I just think it would segregate gays from straights. Clinton put this into law, and to be honest, I think it's been mentally and physically protecting them.
    No one ever thinks about the consequences. I'm just tired of civilians acting like it's their job to run shit like this. Enlist, then complain about it. Most of the people whining here wouldn't make it through the FIRST DAY of basic training, let alone the rest of their military career. A lot of losers who have no common sense…

  23. 23

    It should be our Military's choice, they live a lot harder life than most of the pitty assholes who only care about their selfish wants. I'm just sickened that that's all people care about when it comes to our country. Gay rights. There is so much more going on right now. That will never change =( so sad. Don't blame other countries from hating us, there's no American Pride here.

  24. 24

    Re: Gagalo0 – That's how I feel too. She only gives a shit about gay rights. To me she doesn't seem all that people say she is, because for one… no one is perfect. There has to be something really fucked up in her life, because she's pretty fucked up. Not to be rude, but she is. She needs some help. I used to love her too =/

    Re: mustbenargles – 23
    Chief of Staff Gen. Norton Schwart said recently, "If the law changes, there is no doubt in my mind that all airmen in the U.S. Air Force will implement the change professionally, thoroughly and effectively".
    He continued by saying “The working groups have looked at the various issues that might entail should the law change — everything from billeting to entitlements to personal displays of affection to you name it,” he said. “That effort … will allow us … to take a much more thoughtful, targeted and effective approach to implementation.
    “But there is one bottom line on all of this. … The standards of conduct do not change, period.”

    I have friends in the military and they all say HELL NO to this, they say it will be terrible for morale and unit cohesion, some of them will quit the service if this ban is thrown out. Listen to the men and women in uniform, not this pathetic excuse of a huma being.

  27. 27

    Re: mustbenargles – exactly..wen she came out i loved that she was in art school n i loved her fashion sense but now she tries to b this freaky person n acts like she is an outcast…that is not the gaga i became a fan of n loved….she is so contrived rite now like she tries 2 be sum1 shes not..i hope she can find her center again because she seems way 2 caught up in fame n herself..euuughhh such a turn off :(

  28. 28

    i love how passionate she is about issues like this. kudos to her, people can keep hating but shes doing more than all of you combined.

  29. 29

    SHUT UP - sick of entertainers using their platforms for politics - just make music and STFU - I don't care about your politics - you are a user and an overexposed character. GO AWAY.

  30. 30

    Lady gaga is exploiting the gay community. she's doing this for her own benefits. what she's doing it's not coming from an honest place. Her political agenda is self serving.

  31. 31

    Hell no. I wouldn't join that nasty freak for anything. She's a fucking joke no one is going to take her seriously.

  32. 32

    I never really liked gaga but I did not hate her. The moment she wore that meat dress and got away with it, I hated her. Anybody else, everyone would be crucifying them for it. BUT NO NOT GAGA.

  33. 33

    You have to admit it,
    Lady Gaga is revolutionary.
    if you still don't see that happening, then you're living in the past.
    Why do you guys hate so much? What do you guys get when you hate? NOTHING.
    I love how she's different from other pop artist, she's not only making music but she's also doing a good thing for all people who were waiting too much to be heard. She is the voice of the unheard people in the past. Let her do her own thing, if this is the way she views life, let her view the way she views it.
    Some people needs to open up.

    Does she really need to be like the others?
    And to all the people who are saying that Perez blogs too much about her, you have to know the fact that shes a fucking celebrity and it's Perez's job to report.
    Plus, why do you even bother to visit this site if you only say HATRED. If you don't like it, then go HOME.
