Pentagon holds first-ever gay pride event6/15/2012
This month the Pentagon will honor our gay and lesbian troops for the first time, having designated June as gay pride month. The move follows the Defense Department tradition of recognizing diversity in our armed forces with events such as Black History Month and Asian-Pacific American Heritage Month. Details are still to be released about what gay pride month will involve, but it shows how much has changed since the repeal of the "don't ask, don't tell" policy nine months ago.
Has the Pentagon surprised you?
