Tenth anniversary of the repeal of Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell

The repeal of DADT gave LGB service members the freedom to serve without having to hide an essential part of themselves. It also recognized to serve in the military should be measured by character, skills and abilities, not who one loves.


As a result of stigma, stress, and discrimination, LGBTQ+ Veterans face increased health
risks and unique challenges in health care. We want you to be comfortable talking with your
VA providers about all aspects of your life, so we can offer you the best care possible. View/Download our LGBTQ+ Quick Start Guide to get started with VA services.
