Sandi - Saw that yesterday in Twitter! It's a tad hard not to gloat, isn't it? What will the evangelicals do now...

Robert Spitzer, Psychiatrist Behind Controversial 'Ex-Gay' Study, Retracts Original Claims:

"In a move that will no doubt rankle the efforts of anti-gay institutions, the psychiatrist who published a controversial 2001 study proclaiming that "highly motivated" gay and lesbian people could change their sexual orientation is now retracting his initial claims"

I notice that over half of this video is devoted to... um, guys with... um... beautiful personalities... trying to stay cool by removing their jackets... and shirts. That reception hall must have been WARM!!

Amazing!  Or at least, odd!

Interesting. Matlovich's grave is in the same row as J. Edgar Hoover's.

Tony, thanks for telling your story.  It's quite moving.

SB, talk about life coincidences. I was stationed at Langley from '73-'77 and I took race relations under Tsgt. Matlovich. He made a good impression on me, and when he came out, I made a trip to the building he taught in, just to shake his hand and tell him I was behind him. And quess what? I wasn't the only one. Many, many people, still on active duty did. And almost all were straight. He knew he had the support of (most) of the troops there. Wow. Thanks for this, and for giving me a wonderful, beautiful trip through my memories of a truly great American. I was honored to have known him, even briefly, as our paths only crossed those two times. Again, thank you. Be well.

Richard,

I don't know anyone who fits your bill, but Leonard Matlovich was one of my heros growing up.  He's dead now.

This is important: From Justin Griffith's blog:

A trusted journalist asked me if I could put him in touch with any victims of discrimination from a specific era. Frankly, I’m not able to help!

"I’d love to connect with someone who received a “dishonorable” or “undesirable” discharge from the military for being gay. This was the standard procedure before the DADT policy was implemented — so ideally we’re looking for an openly gay WWII or Vietnam vet. Family members of the vet could also work.

Any ideas? Any help you can provide would be greatly appreciated!"

I know this guy has something up his sleeve that may actually result in real world change. It’s worth a shot, anyway. Please, if anybody knows a victim of this social injustice – please contact Justin Griffth.

Carl,

Interesting article.  Even though this is what we already thought, it's important to have actual data instead of just our instincts.
