This is truly amazing! A day to be remembered and celebrated!
Because of the injunction currently banning the 'Don't Ask, Don't Tell' policy, Lt. Dan Choi - who has fought tirelessly for gay rights in the military ever since he was kicked out over his sexuality - was able to re-enlist in the army yesterday as an openly gay man!
Although he originally intended to join the marines, he unfortunately found out he couldn't - but only because he was too old!
We're so thrilled to hear the news, and are so proud of Choi for being unrelenting in his fight for equal rights!
A well-deserved triumph, bb!
