Human Rights Campaign Presents: ASK NOT

Published Jimmy - Wed, 05/05/2010 - 7:15pm

ASK NOT is a rare and compelling documentary film that explores the effects of the US
military’s “don’t ask, don’t tell” policy on gay and lesbian soldiers and service members. The
film exposes the tangled political battles that led to the discriminatory law and examines the
societal shifts that have occurred since its passage in 1993. Current and veteran gay soldiers
reveal how “don’t ask, don’t tell” affects them during their tours of duty, as they struggle to
maintain a double life, uncertain of whom they can trust.

The film also explores how gay veterans and youth organizers are turning to forms of personal
activism to overturn the policy. From a national speaking tour of conservative universities to
protests at military recruitment offices, these public events question how the U.S. military can
claim to represent democracy and freedom while denying one segment of the population the right to serve. (from http://asknotfilm.com/)
