Lady Gaga is stepping up her campaign against the U.S. military’s controversial ‘Don’t ask, don’t tell’ policy – she’s set to speak at a protest rally on Monday.
The Poker Face hitmaker has been vocal about her opposition to the rule – which bans homosexual service personnel from revealing their sexuality – in recent interviews, and has even written about it on her Twitter.com page.

Now she is expected to join a protest march in Portland, Maine on Monday, organized by the Servicemembers Legal Defense Network.

The event will call on Republican Senators Olympia Snowe and Susan Collinsto to vote to repeal the policy.

Taking to her Twitter.com page on Sunday, Gaga writes, “Meet me in Portland, Maine 2moro (sic), 9/20 to help repeal DADT (Don’t ask, don’t tell). I’m holding a rally + speaking live in Deering Oaks Park.”

In a viral video aimed at policymakers on Friday, she added, “Ultimately, the law is being enforced using gay profiling… In short, not only is the law unconstitutional, but it’s not even being properly enforced by the government… We are not asking you to agree with or approve the moral implications of homosexuality; we’re asking you to do your job, to protect the constitution.”
