DOD Holds First Lesbian-Gay-Transgender Pride Event in Kandahar, Afghanistan (Video)

The Department of Defense held their first lesbian, gay, and transgender pride event in Kandahar recently.

KPBS reported:

U.S. troops deployed to Kandahar Airfield in Afghanistan this week held the first Lesbian, Gay, Bi-Sexual, Transgender Pride event to be observed in a deployed environment.

The Pentagon also held a LGBT Pride Month ceremony on Tuesday, one day before the U.S. Supreme Court struck down the Defense of Marriage Act, which defined marriage as between a heterosexual couple.

It’s no longer important that we win wars. What’s important is that everyone feels included.
