On Veterans Day, it’s a time to give thanks especially to those veterans that are ignored due to discrimination.
Since our community is often under counted it is a conservative estimate that at least 10-20% or 2.3 - 4.6 million veterans are Lesbian Gay Bisexual Transgender (LGBT) people. All have served this nation well and have received little to no credit for their vast contributions to national value.
We are eternally grateful for their service to our country…

Here's a side-by-side comparison of what all 13 presidential candidates now plan for America's 31 million LGBT citizens, both military and civilians:

For well over a year now I've been posting blogs about my battle with the VA to recognize my wife as my same sex spouse. I filed my first claim in June 2010. It was denied and I filed an appeal asking for a DRO Review.
Yes once again in the USA people are competing for the job of President. What does this event mean to pro Lesbian Gay Bisexual Transgender (LGBT) equality activists? This is when our community becomes the target for discriminatory dogmatic diatribe.
Politicians in the USA are not elected to provide religious leadership. In this country we have in the first amendment “…separation between religion and matters of the…Continue

The below message is from Dan Choi.
Its important to not only sign this, but ask others to as well.
DADT victims get a double whammy.
Not only are their lives and careers severely negatively impacted by being fired for being LGBT, but Uncle Sam afterwards demands they give money back for not fulfilling their service time in the…Continue

Respect for Marriage Act is now being supported by the White House.
We welcome this change, but it is not enough of an effort.
It is now time for our…Continue
Once again we the LGBT employees of the Department of Defense (DOD) have been betrayed by both our DOD senior leadership and the Commander and Chief. Its not because any of these people are intentionally mean, but it is because they lack the spine to do what they know are the right things.
As an important example: the LGBT community was told that the President was going to share the same benefits that Department of State Clinton is sharing for gay couples within her purview…Continue
We've seen it all, but we sincerely hoped that we would not see this President an expert in constitutional law have his Department of Justice (DOJ) for a second time request an "Emergency Stay" on the
Don't Ask Don't Tell (DADT) injunction.
Please say it isn't so.
Tell us this is a bad dream and that our President is not…Continue

The Navy is riding high these days. My congrats to Seal Team Six for taking out OBL. In my opinion, his death is long overdue. I heard the Seal who fired the kill shot is a married man. Interesting that the Navy would…Continue

1. When there was testimony on the hill by Pentagon leadership it was stated that LGBT (they call all of use the H word) is only 2 – 3%. This is inaccurate. The 2000 USA census barely counted any of us and claimed we were 4% of the…Continue
DOD FED GLOBE completely supports the LCR appeal to end the US ban on openly LGB soldiers immediately. LCR filed their brief in the 9th US Circuit Court of Appeals in San Francisco yesterday. We concur and commend this action!
LCR is absolutely right that it is unconstitutional for Congress to allow the military to keep the ban while it trains troops to deal with the change after lawmakers have…

13 Activists from GetEQUAL were in court Friday.
They were in court for doing what other oppressed people have also done in the past when desperate;
a peaceful tactic civil disobediance.
Had these brave 13 people not done this then rest assured the DADT…Continue

As repeal of the dreaded Don't Ask Don't Tell Don't Pursue (DADT) gets closer to reality so too are new tricks to force Lesbian Gay Bisexual (LGB) service members out:
"An attorney says the Navy is inventing grounds to fire…
Today our President Obama declared that the so-called "Defense of Marriage Act" or "DOMA" is unconstitutional discrimination against legally married same-sex couples, and stated that the Administration will no longer defend the law in Court. The President also concluded that "classifications based on sexual orientation should be subject to a more heightened standard of scrutiny."

The Pentagon's spin masters are at it again. In the above link is the latest lie/ distortion an article from "Stripes."
They act like they are doing us a favor by not counting our community. This is more along the lines of re-engineering the DADT mandated closet.
In this article …Continue

The USA military got done within 1 month; conquered Grenada, threw Iraq out of Kuwait, and provided the training on sexual harassment from the tailhook scandal. Knowing how fast the DOD can move this Repeal DADT certification effort should have already been signed, sealed, and delivered.
Most important is desensitivity training and DOD FED GLOBE has provided it for free to the Department of Defense and world.
The DOD is intentionally making repeal sound more…Continue
The LCR lawsuit will stop immediately the illegal unconstitutional mandate that LGB Service Members go into the closet. It is the best solution. It will restore our civil rights of "Freedom of Speech," "Protection from self incrimination," and "Equality clause."
Historically the Department of Defense has an unwritten policy/ rule that excludes LGBT area from its entire diversity program for all employees including the civilians. It has however, spread significant stereotyping and…Continue
