LGBT Military Groups Join Forces

Two LGBT military organizations OutServe-SLDN & Military Partners & Families have announced that they are joining forces. The existing operations of MPFC will be incorporated into OutServe-SLDN creating the nations’ largest organization focused on the support of the LGBT military community including service members, veterans & military families. Matt Thorn, Executive Director of OutServe-SLDN stated, “We are thrilled to welcome the Military Partners & Families Coalition into OutServe-SLDN. Over the years they’ve been an invaluable partner to our work & we’re thrilled that they’re now part of our family. We’ve learned from experience that the whole is always greater than the sum of its parts. Adding the work of MPFC & its team of leaders to OutServe-SLDN is a huge win for the families of LGBT service members & veterans.” Ariana Bostian-Kentes, President & co-founder of MPFC, added, “Working alongside OutServe-SLDN as a coalition partner has been vital to the successes we’ve celebrated as a military family community. We aim to build on that success through this merger by adding to the breadth of resources available to those who serve & support our military & by prioritizing the interests of all families who serve our country.” Matt Thorn will continue in his role & become President & CEO of the combined organizations. Ariana Bostian-Kentes & MPFC Vice President, Tracey Hepner, will join the board of directors & the current 13 member OutServe-SLDN board will continue in their respective roles.
