Group wants military recruiters to target gays after repeal of ban
An underground military gay group wants military recruiters to reach out to the homosexual community in the same way they target blacks, Latinos and women.
The Pentagon’s ban on open gays is due to be lifted Sept. 20, meaning avowed gay people can sign up, those in the ranks can come out of the closet and the military will no longer discharge personnel because of sexual preference.
What is unclear is the number of post-ban policies that might be adopted to meet the demands of gays and ease sexual integration of homosexuals and heterosexuals.
The group OutServe, which claims more than 4,000 gay and lesbian military members worldwide, plans a coming out party, of sorts, in Las Vegas in October.
