Tonight Lt. Dan Choi will be speaking from the IMU on the University of Iowa campus. I will be live blogging the event and you can follow it here:

Lt. Dan Choi Lecture

Choi revealed he was gay on the Rachel Maddow show and a month later received notice that he was going to be discharged from the Army for violating the “don’t ask, don’t tell policy.” He is now an advocate for LGBT rights and has started a group to help other homosexuals fighting in our military.

I think this is an important moment in our country’s history as we debate the issue of gays in the military, and I applaud the work Choi has done advocating for LGBT rights. I hope we as a country can move past stigmas and stereotypes and someday realize the dream of true equality.
