For nearly 25 years, OutServe-SLDN has been dedicated to bringing full LGBTQ equality to America’s military and ending all forms of discrimination and harassment of military personnel on the basis of sexual orientation and gender identity. They provide free and direct legal assistance to servicemembers and veterans affected by the repealed Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell (DADT) law and the prior ban on open service, as well as those currently serving who may experience harassment and discrimination.
OutServe-SLDN led the fight to repeal DADT, has represented over 12,000 service members, and provides a community for over 25,000 active members through their 80 local chapters around the globe.
Now, with the current administration’s attempt to ban transgender military service, OutServe-SLDN has been leading the legal battle to protect transgender servicemembers. Your support will help them prepare for the legal battles ahead, as well as help servicemembers discharged as a result of their sexual orientation have their record cleansed so they can finally have their service characterized appropriately and access the veterans’ benefits they’ve earned.
20$ of every $25 Tie The Knot purchase is donated to frontline organizations fighting for LGBTQ equality. All profits raised from the sale of our Tie The Knot collection this month will be donated directly to OutServe-SLDN.
