Plenary: Ten Years Later: The Repeal of “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell”
From 1994 until its repeal under the administration of President Barack Obama, tens of thousands of LGBTQ members of the military were forced to live in the closet or face discharge because of “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell.” Ten years after the repeal of this policy, we speak with the lawmakers, activists, and brave service members who worked to ensure that LGBTQ could serve out and proud. Panelists will provide a behind-the-scenes look at the repeal of the law, the impact it had on servicemembers and veterans, and how LGBTQ people serving openly is affecting the military and U.S. society-at-large.
