Ask, tell, salute: GLBT servicemen to be honored at Vets Day rally

by Jeremy Hooper

   This Veterans Day in Oakland, CA, a rally will be held to honor the more than a million estimated lesbian and gay vets living in the United States, the additional 65,000 thought to be currently serving, and the countless number who are no longer with us. At the shindig, the vets will be encouraged to be out, visible, and to support repeal of the military's "Don't Ak, Don't Tell" policy of disrespect.

Keeping with the spirit of the day, we will honor the countless gay boys who first realized they were queer while watching Platoon, yet were forced to pretend it was the action and gunplay that piqued their interests, not Charlie Sheen or Johnny Depp. We will encourage a future where gay kids are free to be out and proud, with the ability to ask their brother "Is he nice looking, or what?" and tell their dad "Dude, I'd like to get on that," all without gettin' a whoopin'.
