Although Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell is finally history, during its lifetime women got discharged at much higher rates than men. So let’s take a second to honor some of our lesbian and trans sisters who served in the Armed Forces during the ban—and let’s jam out to the lesbian hip-hop duo God-Des and She while doing it.
In the song God-Des says, “It’s up to us y’all. Our generation is way too complacent. We have a war going on and so many of us are not free. It’s time that we take a stand and come together and don’t just talk revolution—act revolution. Stand up, c’mon.”
Truly a great tune. Now if we can just repeal DOMA and get trans acceptance in the military, then we’ll really have a great occasion for dancing.
