Tonight at midnight Eastern time the Don't Ask Don't Tell policy will finally be consigned to the dustbins of history. Gay, lesbian, and bisexual soldiers will finally be able to serve openly in the US military.
The organizations who have worked to repeal the discriminatory policy will start the celebrations tonight with Servicemembers United's "Countdown to Repeal" party at Town - a danceclub in Washington DC.
Don't spend this milestone at home alone! Come out and join hundreds, maybe even thousands, of other servicemembers, vets, and supporters around the country for a New Years Eve-style celebration on the night of Monday, September 19th (with an actual, euphoric countdown to repeal at midnight)!
This is NOT a fundraiser, and there is NO "suggested donation." This will be a once-in-a-lifetime moment for the gay military community, so come out and celebrate our historic victory with friends.
On Tuesday, SLDN takes center stage with "Repeal Day" parties in over 100 cities nationwide. Flagship events with special guests will take place in Washington, D.C., New York City, Philadelphia, Chicago, Charleston, SC, West Hollywood, and Germany. Check out the SLDN site for more details.
