Singers Lady Gaga, Katy Perry and Pink are among the celebrities who celebrated the demise of “Don't Ask, Don't Tell,” the law that forbids gay and bisexual troops from serving openly.

On Saturday, the Senate followed in the footsteps of the House to approve repeal of the 1993 law.

The final 65 to 31 vote included eight Senate Republicans. West Virginia Senator Joe Manchin, the only Democrat not to vote for repeal, did not attend the vote, but later said in a statement that he does not believe the timing is right for repeal.

“Can't hold back the tears+pride,” Lady Gaga tweeted to her more than 7 million followers shortly after the vote. “We did it! Our voice was heard + today the Senate REPEALED DADT. A triumph for equality after 17 years.”

Late last month, Gaga recorded a video urging senators to repeal the law.

“Thank you Senators for pushing us one step closer towards full equality,” Ellen DeGeneres, who is openly gay, tweeted.

“SUPPORTING ALL OUR TROOPS!” Katy Perry added in retweeting a message from Pink: “Congrats 2 US!!! REPEAL of DADT & 17 years of allowing Human Rights Violations. There's hope after all!”
