Repeal DADT Message from Lady Gaga

Quick thoughts and news: DADT
  • DADT repeal, which has already passed the U.S. House of Representatives, is being put to a vote next week thanks to Majority Leader, Harry Reid, who sent out this tweet earlier today in response to a call of action by Lady Gaga

"HarryReid  .@ladygaga There is a vote on #DADT next week. Anyone qualified to serve this country should be allowed to do so”

This means that should Senate pass the repeal, it will go directly to President Obama who has promised to sign the bill.

So, although DADT was “repealed” and found unconstitutional earlier this week by a District Court in California, unless that decision is appealed all the way to the Supreme Court, there isn’t much that will change (legally).

  • So what does this mean to you?
  • This means that you should contact your state’s US Senator and urge them to repeal DADT! Focus is being put on John McCain right now because he is a long time opponent to DADT being repealed (although his daughter is a LGTB Rights Advocate) and his decision can sway those of other Republicans.
  • If DADT does not get enough votes or there is a filibuster, the bill will most likely die in the Senate and it will most likely take several more years until it is re-introduced. A decision through the legislation, rather than the judicial system is most prevalent right now and would mean an immediate ratification of the law.
