Today, the “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” survey report is finally released. Originally set to be released on December 1, 2010, it was released today, which is a date early than the original release date, to give consideration for the senate to have more time to debate about the repeal of “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell”. This report is 164 pages long, and you can read the whole report on the links below:
President Barack Obama, Secretary Robert Gates, and Admiral Mike Mullen support the results of this Pentagon conducted survey, in which more than 70% of the armed forces and their families state that they do not believe that repealing “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” will harm the armed forces, and some reported that repealing this law may have positive results, and some stated that there will be neutral effects on the armed forces.
In a few days, the repeal for “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” will be discussed in the senate. Stay tuned for more updates.
At 2:00 PM, the “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” Press Conference has begun. Gates, Mullen and the Joint Chiefs of Staff discuss Pentagon’s DADT survey. Watch live here.http://bit.ly/fzzVrr#cnn #lgbt #glbt #dadt
This is an LGBT related issue that is close to my heart. I urge people to watch this right now.

This is the first “It Gets Better” video from Malaysia.
This video was brought to my attention when a friend of mine on facebook has posted this. I am glad that my friend shared this video to me. Now, it is my turn to share it to you.
It is just amazing how Dan Savage’s “It Gets Better” Project is reaching all LGBTQA folks worldwide. This video from Malaysia is an amazing video that you should definitely check out. Please remember that it does get better each and everyday.
Hank Chen, aka “Hanksterchen“, on youtube has posted a new video as a follow up on his “It Gets Better” video. He is an awesome guy, and his videos have personally brought me laughs and inspiration with his powerful videos. Did I mention that he is a really cool guy?
You can find my original post about him by clicking HERE.
Why should you watch this? Simple: He’s awesome. Aside from that, if you struggle being Asian and/or Christian, and you identify as LGBT (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, or Transgendered), then the following videos are just for you.
To my readers who live in the United States, Happy Thanksgiving to you! For those of you who do not live in the US, Thanksgiving Day is a day that commemorates the historical landing of the “New World Settlers” while sailing across the Atlantic Ocean on the Mayflower ship. These new settlers left England in pursuit of Religious freedom.
This US holiday is a day where all Americans in the world have a right to pig out and eat so much until they cannot eat anymore. It’s also a day of giving thanks.
I wish to say that I am very thankful of the LGBT community for having them as my pillar of support when I needed people to understand me because I can relate to them. Thank you LGBT community for fighting for our rights! God Bless the LGBT community. Happy Thanksgiving!
