COUNTDOWN TO REPEAL

The Five New Faces That Emerged At The Dawn Of The DADT Repeal


With today’s historic “Don’t Ask Don’t Tell” repeal, many new military faces have come fresh out of the closet and back onto the battlefields. In fact OutServe has featured 101 faces of LGB servicemembers who can now serve openly without fear of discharge. But we’d like to celebrate some of the newer gay and lesbian faces that emerged over the last couple years in the media. They don’t represent all or even the most influential faces people who helped repeal DADT, but their stories about life in the military closet helped raise awareness about the anti-gay policy through frequent appearances on TV and in print—something worth well commending.
