Former Army Lt. Dan Choi, an officer-turned-activist after he was discharged under “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell,” is coming to Texas to speak at the University of North Texas on Feb. 6 for its Distinguished Lecture Series.
In 2009, Choi announced that he is gay on The Rachel Maddow Show and he was later discharged. Afterward, he became one of the most well-known faces of the fight to repeal DADT.
Choi will speak at 8 p.m. Feb. 6 in UNT’s Auditorium Building, located at 1401 W. Hickory St. The event will include remarks from Choi, as well as a question and answer session.
Tickets for the public are $10 and can be purchased online or in person at the Stovall Temporary Union Building Information Desk or by calling 940-565-3805.
