Lt. Choi Arrested at White House Gates for Protesting DADT

You might remember that Lt. Dan Choi keynoted the Annual Governor's Conference on LGBT Youth here in Iowa in February.  Well, this just in:

 "In an act of civil disobedience, Lt. Dan Choi and Jim Pietrangelo have been arrested at the White House gates on Thursday while protesting the military's "don't ask, don't tell" policy.

Following a Human Rights Campaign rally for DADT repeal in Washington earlier today, Choi and Pietrangelo led about 100 protesters to the White House, where the two then proceeded to handcuff themselves to the gates."

Sometimes, civil disobedience, is a way to get your point across.   We support Lt. Choi and his courage to keep fighting for equality!  Read the full article HERE.
