DADT Goes Gaga at the VMAs

At Sunday nights MTV Video Music Awards, irritating pop music personality Lady Gaga brought along as her escorts four ex-service members who found their careers affected by DADT.

The Advocate identifies the escorts:

Katie Miller, described on Servicemembers Legal Defense Network's website as "a top West Point cadet who resigned in August to protest the discriminatory law"; Maj. Mike Almy, an Air Force officer who was discharged in 2006 and who testified in the federal challenge to "don't ask, don't tell"; David Hall, a former U.S. Air Force staff sergeant; and Stacy Vasquez, Army sergeant first class, who was also discharged as a result of DADT.
Gaga was previously brought into the DADT debate after that notorious Afghanistan "Telephone" tribute video, so now she's decided to join in. See her talk about DADT while wearing a dress made of meat (sure to piss off PeTA) on a post-VMA special edition of Ellen.
