Promise an Authentic Life Before Asking Someone to Give It

This new campaign delivers a body blow. Called “Freedom to Serve, Freedom to Marry,” the information campaign is targeted at educating the public about the Defense of Marriage Act and its impact on gay and lesbian military families.

Evan Wolfson, the founder of Freedom to Marry, one of the organizations behind the campaign, spells it out:s:

Many people assume that, with the repeal of “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell,” gay men and lesbians serving our country are now being treated fairly and equally, but that’s not the case. We ended the ban on open military service for gay and lesbian Americans, but there is still federal ban on treating married service members as what they are: married.
