“Don’t ask, don’t tell” was the official US policy on gay, lesbian and bisexual members of the military, instituted by the Clinton Administration on February 28, 1994, when Department of Defense Directive 1304.26 issued on December 21, 1993, took effect, lasting until September 20, 2011.
Drawing upon materials from SNMA’s Archives, this exhibition explores the LGBTQ community’s response to the controversial policy before, during and after the seventeen years it was in effect.
Many thanks to volunteer Harvey Abrams who assisted in the research for this exhibition.
