Three members of the OutServe/SLDN board have resigned over the sudden firing of the group's executive director, Allyson Robinson.

LGBT blog was first to report on the firing. Robinson was hired to the post in October, making her the first out transgender leader of a national LGBT rights organization not devoted to transgender issues.

Robinson has declined to comment on the situation other than to confirm her termination on Saturday during a regularly scheduled board meeting.

According to BuzzFeed, three board members and several staffers resigned in protest, including board members Sue Fulton, Matthew Phelps and Beth Schissel. Prior to the resignation, there were 18 board members, including Robinson.

“Although no one would speak on the record about the reasons for the board's decision to seek Robinson's resignation, sources familiar with the board's decision expressed widely divergent views on factors that figured into the move – from fundraising and leadership abilities to personality conflicts to anti-transgender bias,” BuzzFeed wrote.

OutServe and SLDN merged soon after the repeal of “Don't Ask, Don't Tell,” pledging to continue the fight for greater rights for LGBT service members.
