Memorial Day After ‘Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell’

After the repeal of ‘Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell’ our gay & lesbian military are now confronted with the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) that forces the military to treat legally married gay & lesbian service members & their families differently than it treats all other married service members & their families. SLDN (Servicemembers Legal Defense Network) & Freedom To Marry have launched a grassroots petition calling on Congress to end marriage discrimination against gay & lesbian service members & veterans. The petition builds support for repealing the so-called Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) & passing the Respect for Marriage Act. It is part of the new Freedom to Serve, Freedom to Marry national campaign highlighting the stories of military families harmed by DOMA. "This Memorial Day, we remember those who have paid the ultimate price for our freedom, but we must also recognize that our gay & lesbian service members & their families pay a price every day even as they serve our country – a price their straight counterparts are not required to pay. It’s time to repeal the so-called Defense of Marriage Act & honor these brave patriots by treating them equally," said Army Veteran & SLDN Executive Director Aubrey Sarvis. Read Full Petition….
Have a Safe & Fabulous Memorial Day Weekend!!
