A military contingent is organizing to take part of San Diego’s Lesbian Gay Transgender Bisexual (LGBT) Pride Parade this Saturday. It's the first group of openly gay enlisted servicemembers to march in a pride event in the United States.
Sean Sala, a former Navy sailor who is organizing the contingent, said he expects about 350 people to join in for the parade.
“We have LGBT enlisted men and women, their families and fellow straight servicemembers who support the cause," he said.
Those participating have been warned to be cautious, though. Technically, the military’s Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell (DADT) policy banning open homosexuality has not been fully repealed, even though a federal court this month ordered the immediate end of DADT.
