The message below went out to Standing on the Side of Love supporters. Sign-up for these emails here.

Dear Friends,

After centuries of being forced into the closet, gay, lesbian and bisexual service members are on the verge of breaking out this year.

Just last night, lawmakers reached a compromise that could pave the way to the repeal of “don’t ask, don’t tell” before the year ends! But this compromise all hinges on key votes this week in the House of Representatives and the Senate Armed Services Committee.

We need you to call and email your representatives in the next 24 hours and ask them to repeal “don’t ask, don’t tell”.

No mater how you feel about the military in general, I hope we can all agree that the key tests for military service should be patriotism, a sense of duty, and a willingness to serve – not the gender of the person you love.

Please make the call so that gay, lesbian and bisexual Americans can serve this country with dignity and honor.
