NAS Jacksonville Hosts First-Ever Gay Pride Event

Since the “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” policy was repealed a few years back, the military has had to find a way to integrate a newly outed community of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender service members.  

On Tuesday, Naval Air Station Jacksonville held it’s first-ever gay pride event today. A Navy spokeswoman says the celebration is first on any Navy base in the southeastern U.S.
