'Don't ask, don't tell' to be challenged in LR

Posted By on Mon, Aug 14, 2006 at 1:04 PM

Little Rock is among 30 U.S. cities targeted for protests against the U.S. military's ban on homosexuals.

In the next few months, gay men and women in their late teens and early 20s will attempt to enlist at recruiting offices in 30 cities. They will also disclose their sexual orientation.

If they are rebuffed, the activists plan to stage sit-ins at the offices, hoping to attract media coverage and support from a public they believe increasingly opposes the ban.

The protest is called Right to Serve, and its website has a page for the Little Rock campaign where you can donate or register to participate.
