The Lady L, Dont Ask/Dont Tell, My Xmas Present #2

For my lovely Lady L, a fourth posting, and brought to you in party by the aforementioned Lady.

As viewed on the video podcast On Duty. OnDutyPodcast.Blogspot.Com

The Unknown Service Member.
He is proud.
He is patriotic.
He is honorable.
He is fearless.
And he is silent… because he is gay.

There are more than 65,000 LGBT service members currently serving in the United States’ Armed Forces. This is Unknown Service Member #1. He has served his country with honor and distinction, but because of “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell,” we cannot show you his face.

Are you an Unknown Service Member?

Do you want to stand up and be counted?

SLDN is scouring the globe in an effort to acknowledge the contributions of each and every LGBT service member currently in uniform. If you are one of these courageous Americans, STAND UP AND BE COUNTED!

We do not want your name!
We do not want your rank!
We do not want your serial number!
But we do want your anonymous photo!

Now….Cover your face. Make sure there’s nothing that identifies who or where you are. And send your photo to legal@sldn.org. What number are you?

I have been working with my Stonewall Democrat group in a petition drive to repeal "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" This is not a Democrat or a Republican issue, it's an equal rights issue, and something you should definitely be concerned with. We will be presenting it to Tim Ryan, our House Representative, very soon. I hope if you happen to be a reader of the GG who is a serviceman or woman, or you know someone who is, and you are gay, please go to the site above and submit your picture.

So I am still getting in the holiday spirit, and I never get bored of giving you gift ideas for lil ol' me. I told you about the "Hairspray" movie that I am hoping for, and I just found the next thing on my list. I just read that a Company Markets Larry Craig 'I'm Not Gay' Action Doll. The doll, which stands about 12 inches tall, wears a T-shirt with his now famous "I am not gay" pronouncement. Craig, who has voted throughout his career against every LGBT measure that came before the Senate, in a news conference shortly after news of his arrest became public said "I am not gay. I have never been gay." Stupid.com offers a range other 'unusual' Christmas gifts including a Bush countdown key chain and the Hillary Clinton nutcracker.

Have a great week Blogger Friends............GG
