With Tuesday's disappointment at Senate Democrats' failure to break a Republican filibuster on repeal of “Don't Ask, Don't Tell” still stinging, we offer a flashback of celebrity views on the subject.

Celebrities talked about the policy that bans gay troops from serving openly as they attended this year's Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation (GLAAD) Media Awards.

“I think it should be abolished,” Glee star Jane Lynch told iReport blogger Chris Morrow. “And it doesn't look like Obama, our fella, is going to do that right away. He's taking his time.”

“It's passe and old-fashioned” pop singer Adam Lambert said.

Three-time U.S. National Figure Skating champion Johnny Weir said being gay should be irrelevant to military service.

“I think it doesn't matter what somebody is,” Weir said. “I think it matters who they are. And that's something that I stand by very firmly. I mean, if you want to fight in the military, God bless you. We need more heroes in this world. Whether you're gay or straight it doesn't matter, you're fighting for this country.”
