In the Wake of Don't Ask Don't Tell Repeal: Unresolved Questions on LGBT Equality in the Armed Forces

Wednesday, February 29, 2012
12:00 PM - 02:00 PM
American University Washington College of Law, Room 603
4801 Massachusetts Avenue, NW, Washington, DC


The repeal of Don't Ask Don't Tell was a milestone for the fair treatment of LGBT members of the Armed Forces, but non-discrimination in recruitment and staffing does not mean equality has been achieved. To the contrary, the DADT repeal did nothing to address the persistent discrimination against transgender service members, and left significant questions unanswered concerning how the spouses of LGBT service members in civilly recognized same-sex marriages will be treated in the post-ban era. In this panel discussion, the speakers will discuss these and other issues and what remains to be done to achieve equality for all members of the Armed Forces.
