Wow. Lady Gaga is really taking this gay rights thing seriously. Not only did she give us a major shout-out at her D.C. concert this week, she’s at the MTV Video Music Awards at the Nokia Theatre in Los Angeles with a team of servicemembers discharged under “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell.”
According to Servicemembers Legal Defense Network, Gaga’s “dates” for the awards are David Hall, a former U.S. Air Force staff sergeant; Mike Almy, a former Air Force major; Katie Miller, a West Point cadet; and Stacy Vasquez, a former U.S. Army sergeant. All but Miller were discharged under “Don’t Ask.” Miller resigned last month in protest of the anti-gay policy.
