Lady Gaga Urges US To End Defence Of Marriage Act As DOMA Awaits Supreme Court Ruling

25 June 2013, 12:02

The 'Born This Way' singer posts a message of support ahead of the landmark decision this week.

Lady Gaga has posted an emotional pledge to her followers to support the cause to end the the federal Defence Of Marriage Act in America (DOMA)

The 'Marry The Night' singer, a long-time supporter of gay rights, took to Twitter to urge the US to "bring DOMA to the floor) while posting a number of messages about equality.

"Let's go FOMA. Supreme Court lets make history & stand for MARRIAGE EQUALITY! #GetItDoneThis Week #TheWholeWorldIsWatching" Gaga tweeted last night (24th June). "Time to bring DOMA to the floor. #DoItNow #WeAreEqual #WeAreHuman #WeAreValuableToSociety."

Gaga's messages of support come as the US Supreme Court prepares to issue a potentially landmark decision on the constitutionality of DOMA, in the high-profile case US v. Windsor.

The 'Judas' star has maintained a low Twitter profile in recent months ever since her hip surgery operation earlier this year, and before her messages last night she had tweeted a total of just three times since the start of April.
