As of September 20, Don’t Ask Don’t Tell will be a thing of the past. President Obama certified the repeal of the law yesterday in the Oval Office.
“In 60 days, as prescribed in the law passed by Congress and signed by the President last December, repeal will be final.” The law will be off the books on September 20, 2011.
This is an historic moment in American history and the ceaseless efforts of the gay community and activists everywhere made it happen. And, naturally, it didn’t hurt that we elected a president who has been the best president in history for LGBT civil rights.
