LGBT Military Group Outserve to Hold Leadership Conference at Disney Orlando Army Resort

Outserve, the association of actively-serving LGBT U.S. military personnel, has announced the location of its annual leadership conference, which will take place October 25-28, 2012 at the military’s Shades of Green Resort in Orlando, Florida:

OutserveThe Conference will welcome currently serving LGBT and straight military members, veterans, spouses/partners, and allies to join workshops and meetings. Like the 2011 Conference, it will provide an international forum on creating an environment of respect in the military with regards to sexual orientation and gender identity, and provide the LGBT military community a venue for building professional networks, sharing best practices and formulating strategies that help build a stronger military community.  OutServe’s International Leadership Conference is the only conference designed around and for LGBT members of the largest fighting force in the world.

    WHY is “Advancing Full LGBT Equality IN the Military” not included in their description of the purpose of the conference? This reinforces the perception that, despite SOME progress, OutServe remains very much a ball-less, kiss the Pentagon’s ass organization just like they were when, meeting with Pentagon repeal implementation committees, they REFUSED to fight for the inclusion of gays and lesbian service members in protections against harassment and discrimination in such things as performance evaluations, assignments, etc.
