Repealing DADT, the Halloween Costume Factor

In countries like Britain, Canada, Malta, and Israel, openly gay members of the armed forces can take part in public events wearing their well-tailored uniforms without facing prosecution or discharge. But in America, if you want to take part in a gay pride parade in full dress, explains Newsweek, you need to grab your outfit from a costume shop. Totally unfair to gay soldiers who want to march down Santa Monica Boulevard in the annual Halloween parade dressed as themselves, and not a slutty version of themselves.
