Military Gay Support Group Launches Magazine

A support group for gay military service members has launched a magazine focused on the pending repeal of the Pentagon’s “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell’’ policy.

The first edition is available online, and an active-duty Air Force officer who is the co-director of OutServe said the group will make printed copies of OutServe magazine available in May on Air Force bases.

The group’s co-director uses the pseudonym JD Smith because he is gay and has lingering concerns about whether he could be discharged before the policy change is done.

President Barack Obama signed a law in December ending the policy against gays serving openly in the military. That change is not expected to take effect for several months. —Brian White, Associated Press
