A Gay Soldier's Coming Out Story: VIDEOS


In a series of YouTube videos, a faceless soldier who says he is from the Bible Belt, stationed in Europe, and deployed to the Middle East, discusses the anticipation surrounding "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" repeal, and  chronicles the process of coming out to friends and fellow service members.


The repeal of 'DADT' is currently in a 60-day waiting period following its certification at the end of July. The ban on serving openly should be lifted at the end of September.

Follow-up videos:

There are a few more on his YouTube page.

  1. Best of Luck! Stay Safe to you and ALL Military people. You all are our unknown heroes.

  2. @fenrox you're entitled to your opinion but I could not disagree with you more. Servicemembers are hardly random killers. While we could debate the use & abuse of the word hero there is no doubt that they are performing honorable service on behalf of their country. They deserve our thanks and respect for that, at the very least. Your ridiculous assertion that being a soldier means he can't become a hero is not just a cheap shot, it also shows how weak your own concept of right and wrong is.

    The more I think about your statement, the more disgusted with it I become.
