SISTER SOLDIERS

It’s Time To Honor The Lesbians And Trans Women Who Served Under DADT

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.
