Two days before a federal judge ruled “Don't Ask, Don't Tell” unconstitutional, gay icon Lady GaGa met with gay troops impacted by the policy.

The Alejandro singer met with clients of the Servicemembers Legal Defense Network (SLDN), the largest group lobbying for repeal of the law that prohibits gay troops from serving openly, that have been discharged from the military for violating the policy.

Lady GaGa stressed the need for repeal of the law that prescribes discharge for gay and lesbian service members who do not remain celibate or closeted before taking to the stage in Washington D.C.

“Lady GaGa's recognition of these fine patriots casts a spotlight on the unjust burden that 'Don't Ask, Don't Tell' imposes upon the brave men and women who defend our country every day, and further underscores why the Senate must swiftly act to get rid of this despicable law for good,” Aubrey Sarvis, executive director of SLDN, said.

The 24-year-old singer is a strong supporter of gay rights.
