Lady Gaga is celebrating after an unfair U.S. military policy against homosexual soldiers was abolished on September 20th.
The policy in question – DADT (Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell) – was brought into effect in 1993 and disallowed military officers from discriminating against fellow soldiers who were not open about their sexual orientation, and kept gay soldiers from coming out of the closet.
On Tuesday, U.S. President Barack Obama abolished the order, causing a host of celebrities to show their appreciation.
Gaga commented on her Twitter account that it was a beautiful day because the DADT had been repealed and she sent her love and thanks to all members in the service.
Jane Lynch of Glee bid good riddance to the outdated law, and Wanda Sykes, a lesbian comedienne, offered her congratulations to service members.
The announcement of the policy change has already led to several members of the military coming out.
