Which is the Gay One?

Day 16

Memorial Day is a time to remember our soldiers that have died in battle. It goes without saying that there have been thousands of LGBTQ men and women that have died for our country. The vast majority of these people had to live their lives in the closet because of our military’s policy against homosexuals. This is wrong. When an LGBTQ person dies in war, their parter is not eligible to receive any of the benefits that a spouse in a heterosexual relationship would receive. This is wrong. When an LGBTQ person is killed in action, their partner does not have access to the same support network that a heterosexual spouse would have. This is wrong.

This Memorial Day let’s remember ALL of our men and women who have died in battle, including the thousands of LGBTQs. We must push President Obama to repeal “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell”. There have been 216 service members kicked out of the military under “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” since President Obama was sworn in to office. It is a discriminatory law that hurts families and our country. Visit the Servicemembers Legal Defense Network website to take action now. 

We are in Alabama tonight, hoping to do an interview in Mobile tomorrow. Tomorrow night we will be in New Orleans. I’m organizing a rally to either celebrate or protest the California Supreme Court’s ruling on Prop 8. If you know of anyone in New Orleans that would like to help organize the event, send them my way.
