Given her use of Twitter to decry the Pentagon’s ‘Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell’ policy, Lady Gaga, of course, would lead the way on the social media platform to celebrate the Senate’s repeal vote.

‘Can’t hold back the tears [and] pride. We did it! Our voice was the Senate REPEALED DADT. A triumph for equality after 17 YEARS,’ she tweeted, followed by a photo of herself holding a piece of paper reading ‘Full Equality.’


Plenty of other celebs joined in celebrating the repeal, which removes the policy requiring LGBT military officers to remain silent about their identities to serve.

‘Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell REPEALED! So proud of Congress for making the right decision. Now all soldiers can serve with integrity. A great day,’ Neil Patrick Harris wrote.

Ellen DeGeneres thanked senators for bringing the country ‘one step closer towards full eqaulity,’ while Katy Perry retweeted singer Pink, who gave a shout-out to all troops and remarked, ‘there’s hope after all.’
