Pentagon plans to hold Gay Pride month event By Jeremy Herb - 06/14/12 05:17 PM ET
The Pentagon is planning to hold an event celebrating Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender (LGBT) Pride month.
The move comes less than a year after the Defense Departments Dont ask, dont tell policy toward gay and lesbian service members was repealed.
Pentagon spokeswoman Eileen Lainez said the Pentagon is planning its first event for LGBT Pride month, which will be held later in June. Details about the event had yet to be finalized, she said.
The event for Pentagon employees comes after the Dont ask, dont tell policy, the 1990s policy wherein gay service members could be kicked out of the military if they disclosed their sexual identity, was repealed last year.
The repeal, passed by Congress in the 2010 lame-duck session, has been implemented thus far with few reported issues from the U.S. military.
The repeal of DADT was one of President Obamas biggest policy victories for the gay-rights community.
Obama issued a presidential proclamation at the start of the month declaring June LGBT Pride month, where he talked about the repeal of DADT.
"Because we repealed Don't ask, don't tell, gay, lesbian, and bisexual Americans can serve their country openly, honestly, and without fear of losing their jobs because of whom they love," Obama wrote.
What a bunch of crap!
What a bunch of crap!
that is it, stick a fork in us we are done!
Do any noble institutions remain, or have the rats soiled them all?
There needs to be some high-ranking generals and admirals court-martialed over this
Not to mention an abomination.
No doubt they will make all the straight service personnel march en masse onto the grinder and pass in review for this bunch of *(EW_(E_Wr=0-t9*R()*R)(W+(W up kiss ass generals and their gay guests of honor in the reviewing stand...
Thank God I am retired and don’t have to live through this.
Back in the 80s and 90s HumRel was bad enough.
Casual Fridays for this month LOL
BOHICA.....I remember when it wasn’t military policy
DEMOCRATS ARE EVIL EVIL EVIL EVIL!
OMG! There is nothing in the words Pentagon, military, Dept. of Defense, that references sex. They have no business promoting any kind of sexual preference month. Not a single taxpayer dollar should be spent on any of that crap!
Will there be donuts with colorful sprinkles and kool-aid?
Three years in the Army and four in the Air Force. Proud of every minute of service. Would I do it again? Not only no, but heck no. I would like to see military recruitment drop to near zero. Let the homosexuals have it. See how well that works.
While governor of Massachusetts, Romney endorsed Gay Pride parades. (At that time, mayors of several Canadian cities were being taken to court because they refused to do so.) Don’t expect a lot of change regarding support of the homosexual agenda if Romney replaces Obama as President.
Sodom and Gomorrah are not worth dying for...
We have the America hating Obamugabe for this AND his friends in the Senate—Susan Collins, and a few other RINOs.
Perversion and sodomy celebrated in our military.
If I had a kid who wanted to join the military now, I’d flip. Screw this fudgepacker Punk-in-Chief!
