Omaha’s Premier Gay NightClub, The Max with the help of the Servicemembers Legal Defense Network (SLDN) is celebrating the Official Repeal of Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell Tuesday Sept 20th, 2011 at 9pm. The Max will celebrate with Happy Hour all Night, Beer Bust, Bomb Pop Specials and more. Plus they will also have Specials w/ Military ID for Active, Retired and Reserve!
Please encourage any LGBT servicemembers to come and help celebrate this historic day. Many servicemembers are still afraid to come out of the closet, but I think it is safe to let them come out and celebrate a day members of the LGBT Community and Allies have fought for far too long!
The Servicemembers Legal Defense Network was created to help the LGBT Community in the military deal with DADT. According to their about page:
“Servicemembers Legal Defense Network is a non-partisan, non-profit, legal services, watchdog and policy organization dedicated to ending discrimination against and harassment of military personnel affected by “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” (DADT). We work to end DADT, to ensure parity for LGBT service members, and to provide free, confidential legal services to all those impacted by DADT and related discrimination. Since 1993, our in-house legal team has responded to more than 10,000 requests for assistance.”
