Let him tell you himself while Glee star Jane Lynch narrates.
“Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” was officially repealed by the Obama administration on Sept. 20, 2011. This tombstone, meant to be a memorial to all gay veterans, does not have a name, only these haunting words. It’s the resting place of Leonard Matlovich, who in 1975 became the first gay service member to purposely out himself to the military as a protest of its ban on gays serving.
Congrats to these wonderful Marines for standing tall.
