A group of LGBT protesters gathered outside the gate to Fort Hood on Memorial Day to call for an immediate end to discharges under “don’t ask don’t tell.” News 8 Austin has the story:
More than two dozen people from all over Central Texas held up signs that read “Gay or straight, all are heroes” and “Stop unjust discharge of gays and lesbians.”
Organizers say they gathered there not only to honor gay and lesbian soldiers who have served and died, but to show their support for gay and lesbian soldiers who are currently serving as well.
“They can’t reach out to us. They can’t be out to tell us. We have to reach out to them,” organizer Irene Andrews said.
