Get out your iphones and Blackberries, ladies and gentlemen. (Or, if you’re me, your little red phone that doesn’t even take pictures.) Go to the calendar, bring up Thursday, September 16th, and add yourself a new appointment with destiny.
That is the day of the Don’t Ask Don’t Tell lobby day being organized in Our Nation’s Capital by Servicemembers United. This is what it says on their site about it:
In contrast to our spring lobby day, this event will be much more focused on the nuances of the DADT repeal amendment that is soon to be up for debate on the floor of the Senate. Servicemembers United will be focusing on the quality of participant lobbying visits rather than trying to overwhelm senate offices with quantity. It’s time to get this done. Please join us for The Final Assault” on “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell”!
Basically, if you’re pissed about DADT and have the money to go to DC, this is a great opportunity. Go to their site and register. They will email you details about schedule and venue in the next few weeks.
If you want to go to but need someplace to stay, comment and get in contact with me. Let’s just say I have some hook-ups.
Also of interest to queer military partners: there’s supposedly going to be a meeting/get-together of military partners at this thing. Correct me if I’m wrong, but I think this will be the first of its kind. I haven’t found out much about it, but I will be there.
McCain won’t even know what hit him.
