After the U.S. Senate voted to repeal the ban on gays serving openly in the military yesterday, stars took to their keyboards to voice their support for eliminating the 17-year-old measure. Lady Gaga, who recently made repealing DADT her cause célèbre, tweeted, “Today I am so proud to be American. I wish I was home so I could throw a Parade. We are on the way…to full equal [sic].” The pop star was in kind tweeted at by Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, who wrote @ladygaga, “We did it! #DADT is a thing of the past.” Other celebrity responses include:

Katy Perry: “SUPPORTING ALL OUR TROOPS! RT @Pink: Congrats 2 US!!! REPEAL of DADT & 17 years of allowing Human Rights Violations. There’s hope after all!”

P!nk: “Congrats to US!!! REPEAL of DADT and 17 years of allowing Human Rights Violations. Maybe there is hope after all ;’)”

Kathy Griffin: “How about…FINALLY! Equality IS coming!”

Neil Patrick Harris: “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell REPEALED! So proud of Congress for making the right decision. Now all soldiers can serve with integrity. A great day.”

Ellen DeGeneres: “Thank you Senators for pushing us one step closer towards full equality.”
