An adovcacy group is announcing a magazine made for and by gay military members. Outserve, an underground organization made up of active U.S. service members who are lesbian, gay, bi or transgender, produces the publication, which may soon be displayed at military stations around the world.
"Our first objective with the magazine is to let all the gay, lesbian, bi, and trans members currently serving know that they are not alone," an active-duty officer who goes by the pseudonym JD Smith said in a statement. "Visibility is key," Smith said, who added that OutServe hopes to have its next version available in print at "some larger military bases."
The magazine is currently available for download online. The magazine will also contain features on how the repeal of "Don't Ask Don't Tell " will be implemented, as well as pertinent information for LGBT military members.
"We also want to communicate to all troops that there are capable gay military members serving honorably, and that accepting that and moving on will make our military stronger," said Smith.
