Don't Ask, Dont Tell Is Officially Dead!

obama gets dont ask dont tell repealed

This calls for a celebration!

As the headline says, the Department of Defense's Don't Ask, Don't Tell is dunzo!

The court ruled it to be unconstitutional as it treats lesbians and gays differently than straights under the law.

The Pentagon has put a halt on all separations of lesbian and gay service personnel. About time!

Formal repeal of DADT is expected at the end of July or beginning of August.

The repeal will occur thanks to Defense Secretary Leon Panetta, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Admiral Mike Mullen and President Barack Obama.

Each step is another brink on the road to equality, America! We're getting closer!

Filed under: Gay Gay GayPolitikLGBT


Sad news. We can't tell you how this break our hearts.

This morning, the Pentagon confirmed that several more service men and women have been discharged under “don’t ask, don’t tell.”

As the policy's repeal is still pending, these discharges will most likely stick, with one service member's discharge approval set to go into effect this Thursday. Pentagon spokeswoman Eileen Lainez

Obama Issues A Proclamation For LGBT Pride Month, Doesn't Mention Marriage Equality

Filed under: Gay Gay GayPolitikBarack ObamaLGBT

barack obama makes proclamation for lgbt pride month

It's a start…but we need more!

Yesterday, President Barack Obama issued a proclamation for LGBT Pride Month, which tackled a bunch of important issues in the LGBT community, BUT he didn't mention marriage equality OR the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA).

In his defense, he made reference to crucial issues including "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" (DADT), workplace discrimination, and hate crimes, but we're disappointed that marriage equality didn't make its way into this proclamation.

Check out Obama's full proclamation AFTER THE JUMP and let us know what U think!

Such Ignorance! Birds Are NOT Dying Because Of DADT Repeal!

Filed under: Icky Icky PooGay Gay GayPolitikPerezTVLGBT

We cannot express enough how shocking, disgusting, and ignorant this is!

Check out the video (above) to see Cindy Jacobs explain why she thinks there may be a connection between birds dying in Arkansas and the repeal of DADT.

Sidenote - Cindy Jacobs believes she is a legit prophet. That should give you an idea of the type of person we're dealing with here.

What do U think about Cindy's comments?

John McCain Flip Flops On DADT!

Filed under: Gay Gay GayPolitikJohn McCainLGBT


Although he was once against the repeal, Sen. John McCain believes that Don't Ask, Don't Tell will work - especially because he is helping implement the repeal!

McCain said:

"I think I have to do everything I can to make sure that the impact on the morale, retention, recruitment and battle effectiveness of the military is minimized as much as possible. It is a law and I have to do whatever I can to help the men and women who are serving, particularly in combat, cope with this new situation. I will do everything I can to make it work."

Oh boy! It may be okay now, but he was dragging his feet the entire way!

Tisk. Tisk.

It's Official! President Obama Repeals 'Don't Ask, Don't Tell!'


This is truly a day to be remembered!

At 9:35am this morning, President Barack Obama signed the 'Don't Ask, Don't Tell' repeal bill into law in front of about 500 invitees, including many LGBT veterans, like Lt. Dan Choi, who were discharged due to the RIDICULOUS policy!

The President reportedly spoke for about 20 minutes prior to the signing, and his sentiments are best summed up by these poignant, true words:

“We are not a nation that says don’t ask, don’t tell. We are a nation that says, out of many, we are one. You are not the first to have to endure this, but you are the last.”

We cannot even BEGIN to tell you how absolutely ELATED and PROUD we feel on behalf of this country and its leaders!

It was a long, seemingly unnecessary fight filled with heartbreak and frustration, but progress is FINALLY on its way! We can only keep moving forward now, and we are confident that we will!
