Sexual Orientation and Fighting for “Equal” Rights



This presentation will focus on addressing current discussions of homosexual orientation being open in the U.S. military. Who is effected when an individual declares a certain sexual orientation in the military? Is the military like any other job in that many heterosexual couples meet within work interactions? Why does the military look down upon or discourage homosexuals? If people of different sexual orientations can put their lives on the line to defend their country and constitution, why are they unable to partake in the same freedoms and rights granted to every citizen? Join us for this discussion about the issue, multiple arguments, and interactions
