A magazine devoted to openly gay and
bisexual troops will be distributed at Army and Air Force bases
starting on September 20, the day “Don't Ask, Don't Tell” ends,
Officials have approved the
distribution of OutServe Magazine starting next month.
“Don't Ask, Don't Tell” is the
policy that bans gay and bisexual troops from serving openly.
Enforcement officially ends after nearly two decades on September 20.
Congress approved a plan for the law's repeal in December.
The group OutServe,
which publishes the magazine, formed after the law's repeal but
before the policy's official enforcement ended.
The historic end of “Don't Ask, Don't
Tell” will be marked by a series of events hosted by the White
House, Pentagon and gay rights groups.
Former Pennsylvania Representative
Patrick Murphy, who spearheaded last year's effort in the House to
repeal the law, will headline
a September 20 event celebrating its end.
And, at the stroke of midnight, HBO
will air the documentary The Strange History of Don't Ask,
