Lady Gaga is visiting Maine’s largest city to join a rally against the military’s ‘Don’t ask, don’t tell’ policy on gays. Lady Gaga has been going hard for gay rights for some time now and she even she showed up with service members as her entourage at the VMA.
Lady Gaga is expected to join a Servicemember’s Legal Defense Network event near the University of Southern Maine’s Portland campus Monday. Network spokesman Trevor Thomas says the pop star will stand alongside discharged veterans because of the policy, which forbids military recruiters from asking about people’s sexual orientations and prohibits service members from revealing if they are gay.
Lady Gaga recently called on Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid to repeal the policy during an interview with Ellen DeGeneres. Her representatives haven’t returned e-mails seeking comment.
