Lady Gaga urges Maine senators:
MUST HAVE BEEN THEIR NEW BULLETIN LINK: 4000 SHOWED UP AT DEERING OAKS
Tell military to be fair
Thousands hear singer demand end to anti-homosexual policy.
PORTLAND — One of the world's biggest pop stars came to Portland on Monday for a rally to encourage U.S. Sens. Olympia Snowe and Susan Collins to vote to repeal the military policy that requires gays and lesbians to hide their homosexuality, prohibits recruiters from asking about sexual orientation and calls for openly gay members of the military to be discharged.
Lady Gaga, 24, was joined by three such ex-servicemembers on stage at Deering Oaks as she gave a passionate and focused 15-minute speech condemning the "don't ask, don't tell" policy, which is scheduled for a Senate vote today as part of the Defense Authorization Bill.
