Some Celebrities use their status to inspire change

On Septemeber 20, 2010, Stefani Joanne Angelina Germanotta, more commonly known as “Lady Gaga”, spoke out to a group of over 4,500 people in Maine.  Although this was a much smaller audience than she is accustomed to, the performance was just as important.  Gaga spoke out against the rule in the Military known as “Don’t ask, don’t tell” and demanded for its repeal.  This rule prevents openly gay men and women from serving in the military.  This speech took place just one year ago, yet this rule has been repealed.  It looks like this singer was tired of having to put on a “Poker Face” on the issue.
