Lady Gaga is joining a gay rights rally in Maine, organisers have said.

The singer is expected to join a Servicemembers Legal Defense Network protest against the US army's 'don't ask, don't tell' policy.

A spokesman for the Network said Lady Gaga will stand alongside veterans discharged because of the policy, which forbids military recruiters from asking about people's sexual orientations and prohibits service members from revealing if they're gay.

The organization is trying to pressure Maine's Republican senators to vote to allow a repeal of the policy.

Lady Gaga recently called on Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid to repeal the policy during an interview with Ellen DeGeneres.
