Over at the Bilerico-D.C. I have a new post on Lt. Daniel Choi, the Army veteran and member of the New York National Guard who came out publicly earlier this year and in the months since has grown to be one of the most prominent faces and voices in the fight to repeal "Don't Ask, Don't Tell." Short version: some people have been around for a long time, others have been around only briefly, yet both are needed if we want to continue moving forward as a movement.
Be sure to check out my interview with Dan at Metro Weekly -- and be sure to call your senators and representatives and tell them to repeal DADT now -- for your representatives, tell them specifically that you hope they support the Military Readiness Enhancement Act (H.R. 1283).
