Oh, we found something the Human Rights Campaign is doing! Teaming up with Alex Nicholson’s Servicemembers United, HRC’s “Repeal DADT Now” campaign is on a Voices of Honor tour, which at this point feels like Cher‘s final Final tour, ’cause hasn’t this been going on forever? (To be fair, Voices of Honor has been going only since 2005, and there have been just three of them.) The first stop, of 26, was the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, and HRC’s supreme defender Jarrod Chlapowski was there!

Okay, for all our shit about hactivism, taking these messages on tour is actually pretty crucial. And while audience members may already be on board with repealing DADT, these events deliver the crucial arguments any repeal supporter needs, to be able convince just one other person to call her legislator and pass it on.

But couldn’t there at least be a smoke machine or a strobe light or two?
