Brave New Foundation Invites You To National Equality March

Reported by Ellen - September 13, 2009 -

Jim Miller, at Brave New Foundation (with whom we are proud to be associated), writes:

Earlier this year we released an episode of our Iraq/Afghanistan veterans series In Their Boots that dealt head-on with discrimination. We told the stories of the gay partners of the men and women who are in the line of fire serving our country and the shame/fear/secrecy they must endure because of our country's Don't Ask Don't Tell policy. When I learned there would be a gathering in Washington DC on October 10th and 11th in order to demand civil rights for the millions of men and women in this country who are gay, I knew that we had to do something to get more people there to speak out and demand equality.

Miller continues:

Please join us in Washington at the National Equality March so that you or your sons and daughters can live in a country that allows us all to serve in the military, get married and grow up with a sense of pride.
