DON'T ASK, DON'T TELL
The Don't Ask, Don't Tell bill was legislation passed in 1994 by the Clinton Administration, originally intended to act as a compromise between the Democratic and Republican parties on the issue of homosexuality in the military. However, though it was intended to be a noncontroversial solution, it in fact brought the issue front and center to the mainstream media. The bill enhanced a climate of hostility towards LGBT service members, and served as a medium for allowing legal discrimination towards gays in the military. This website will look at the origins of Don't Ask, Don't Tell, it's effect, and it's end.
