CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS – MILITARY COMING OUT DAY
Seeking personal accounts of actions or experiences of serving LGBT military members and their families on 20 September 2011, date of the Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell (DADT) repeal. Did you take part in a celebration, make a point of coming out to those you work with, do a small yet significant or symbolic action (like update your DD 93 and change ‘friend’ to ‘spouse’) that marked the change from forced in the closest to finally able to be yourself and true about those who are your family? What is your story of how you experienced Military Coming Out Day? What was the significance of the day for you and your family? How does the repeal affect you?
Submit your story as RTF or Word document to Victoria.A.Hudson@gmail.com. Please include your name, rank, service, phone number, email and snail mailing address. Deadline is November 30, 2011.
Submissions will be considered for the anthology Military Coming Out Day – September 20, 2011, When DADT Became History, edited by Victoria Hudson.
