The House Voted to repeal "Don't Ask, Don't Tell!"

Just hours ago HRC, the Human Rights Campaign, announced that the House of Representatives voted to repeal “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell.” This historic action follows a vote earlier today for a repeal in the Senate Armed Services Committee and is another step toward ending the ban on "OUT" gays and lesbians in the military.

Human Rights Campaign President Joe Solmonese remarked, “Lawmakers today stood on the right side of history. This is a historic step to strengthen our armed forces and to restore honor and integrity to those who serve our country so selflessly.”

The debate will move to the Senate this summer, before being sent to the President for his final approval.
