New Mag for U.S. LBGT Servicemembers Launched -- Next Edition to Appear in Print at Selected Bases.
WASHINGTON, DC, -- OutServe, the underground network of over 2,900 LGBT military personnel, announced this week, the launch of a publication for gay military members.
The magazine contains features about DADT repeal implementation and OutServe chapters, as well as other information of interest to currently-serving LGBT military members in the U.S.. OutServe, is an organization comprised of LGBT members of the United States Armed Services; it launched in July, 2010.
"Our first objective with the magazine is to let all the gay, lesbian, bi, and trans members currently serving know that they are not alone," said OutServe's co-director, an active-duty officer who goes by the pseudonym JD Smith. "And we also want to communicate to all troops that there are capable gay military members serving honorably, and that accepting that and moving on will make our military stronger."
"Our goal is to have our next version available in print, at some of the larger military bases," he continued. "Visibility is key. We are not about highlighting our differences, but demonstrating how LGBT troops are proud soldiers, sailors, airmen, Coasties, and Marines just like everyone else."
The magazine can be downloaded at OutServe.org.
