Ten years ago today, President Barack Obama signed legislation to repeal “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” — the deeply discriminatory law that prevented gay, lesbian and bisexual Americans from serving openly in the military.
To celebrate this important anniversary, we’ve partnered with Only Human for the launch of a limited edition “Do Ask. Do Tell.” collection.
10% of all profits will benefit MMAA and help to fund our mission to support and defend the LGBTQ military and veteran community.
Join service members, veterans, their families and special guests from around the world to celebrate the 10-year anniversary of the repeal of “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” (DADT) and to support the fight for transgender service members. Thanks to the repeal of DADT, over the past decade, lesbian, gay, and bisexual service members have served openly and proudly in the Armed Forces without fear of being dismissed because of who they are or whom they love. Celebrate this virtual event with the White House and Congressional leaders who led the fight for repeal in 2010. You’ll hear extraordinary stories from service members of all branches and learn more about the renewed fight for transgender military service.
The Modern Military Association of America was formed through the merger of the American Military Partner Association and OutServe-SLDN. They are the nation’s largest non-profit organization dedicated to advancing fairness and equality for the LGBTQ military and veteran community. Below is a list of people and organizations affiliated with the Modern Military Association. The event will take place on December 22, 9:00PM PT.
