Gay rights in the US



BBC

Quote:
The US president has repeatedly pledged to tackle issues important to the gay community.

He has said he will act to repeal the so-called "don't ask, don't tell" policy that allows gays to serve in the army as long as they do not disclose their sexual orientation.

But he is facing criticism for what many in the gay community see as lack of action on his promises.

"Don't ask don't tell: they talk about it being a gay issue but it's not. It's just about civil rights and equality," Julianne Sohn, a former US soldier, told the BBC.



Do you think that people who are gay should be allowed to serve in the military? Why/why not?
