This is one step higher in terms of campaign on discrimination against gays and lesbians.

Celebrities such as Lady Gaga and Ellen DeGeneres are happy and celebrating for the Senate’s vote to repeal the “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” (DADT) policy. This policy, which has been passed by the Clinton Administration last 1993, required gay men and women who are entering the military to hide their sexual identity or risk getting kicked out.

The singer tweeted that she can’t hold back her tears and pride and that it is a triumph for equality after 17 years. “Today I am so proud to be American. I wish I was home so I could throw a Parade. We are on the way…to full equal”. Lady Gaga had been s supporter of homosexuals entering the military and had stood up for them by wearing a meat dress in the MTV awards earlier this year.

TV host Ellen DeGeneres was also happy for the repeal of DADT and thanks the Senators for pushing one step closer to equality in her Twitter account. Even President Obama is celebrating and thanking using his Tweeter account saying that by ending the DADT policy, Americans who love the country won’t have to live a lie in order to serve America.

Indeed, this is a big step towards equality to gays and lesbians. We are glad that President Obama and celebrities are standing up for the homosexuals in military because entering the military to serve the country does not look at sexual orientations. Rather, they look for soldiers who love America, are patriotic, and would do anything to save America from harm and evil. Whether gay or not, these three qualities are a mark of a true soldier.
