Lady Gaga and Harry Reid had a conversation about Don’t Ask Don’t Tell (DADT) the other day on Twitter that has created a buzz on the internet.
@ladygaga: “Gay Veterans were my VMA dates. Repeal Don’t Ask Don’t Tell. CALL HARRY REID to Schedule Senate Vote.”
**she posted this picture along with the tweet:
@HarryReid: “@ladygaga There is a vote on #DADT next week. Anyone qualified to serve this country should be allowed to do so http://bit.ly/9ucdIj #nvsen”
@ladygaga: “God Bless and Thank you @HarryReid, from all of us, like u, who believe in equality and the dream of this country. We were #BORNTHISWAY.”
Although the vote on defense had already been planned for next week, this conversation has sparked fresh debate on the issue of Don’t Ask Don’t Tell, and more broadly the need for change in gay rights, a part of Obama’s domestic agenda that some feel has been neglected. The LGBT community should have the same right as anyone else to fight for our country. Let’s hope this is the first step of many to equality in this country.
