LGBTQ Military Orgs Join Forces

By Charlotte Robinson, May 15, 2019
Two of the largest LGBTQ military organizations OutServe-SLDN & AMPA are merging to form Modern Military Association of America becoming the nation’s largest non-profit dedicated to education, advocacy & support for the LGBTQ military & veteran community. Andy Blevins Modern Military Association of America Executive Director stated, “I’m both humbled & honored to lead the Modern Military Association of America at this challenging moment in the fight for LGBTQ military equality. While we’ve made tremendous progress over the years as a community, much of that progress is now being threatened & rolled back — especially for our transgender service members who now face an unconscionable transgender military ban. We’re committed to doing everything within our power to stand up for all of our modern military & veteran families & ensure they have a powerful voice in Washington & beyond.” Josh Fontanez, a U.S. Army officer and co-chair of the OutServe-SLDN Board of Director added, “For nearly 26 years, OutServe-SLDN has been fighting for the right of LGBTQ military members to serve our nation openly & authentically. We’re proud to continue that fight by merging with the American Military Partner Association & working together to defend & support the LGBTQ military & veteran community.” Ashley Broadway-Mack AMPA President concluded, “We’re truly excited that both of these incredible organizations are merging to create a formidable force in the battles ahead. By combining forces with OutServe-SLDN, we’re embarking on a new journey fighting for open & authentic service & education, advocacy and support for modern military families.”
