Gay & Lesbian First Responders in NOLA

Read this article.An excerpt:
As I watched my friend on CNN, seeing her for the first time and, literally, jumping up and down at the image of her riding in the back of a military vehicle, it also struck me for the first time that there are gay and lesbian first responders on the ground in the New Orleans, risking life and limb to save lives and limbs. These brave men and women who stood guard in their city and are now serving alongside our nation’s armed forces are not, even today, allowed to serve in those same military units. I wondered if Honoré, so masterfully commanding New Orleans into order, ever thought about the gay men and women of the city’s police force who were serving alongside his troops. My guess is that he did not, because surely he had more important things on his mind.

Nicole Barber, an out lesbian, is a former Navy petty officer that had to turn her uniform in because of the military Don't Ask, Don't Tell policy.
