While Russia invades Ukraine, as Islamic terrorist factions plot the West’s destruction, our service members at Kadena Air Force Base in Okinawa, Japan, are being treated to a gay and lesbian drag show.
Thanks to the repeal of “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell,” the military’s longstanding policy towards gays in the military, the military has seen an influx of gay marriage ceremonies and other events that celebrate the alternative lifestyle.
According to Stars and Stripes:
Six servicemembers — gay, lesbian and straight — donned heavy makeup to dance and lip sync songs such as “I Wanna Dance with Somebody” for a raucous capacity crowd at the Rocker NCO Club at Kadena Air Base. The event was a fundraiser for the recently formed Okinawa chapter of OutServe-SLDN, which is the largest nonprofit advocate for the military’s LGBT community.
“We didn’t think there was much of a desire for an event like this on the island but it has actually blown up,” said Navy Lt. Marissa Greene, co-chapter leader of OutServe Okinawa.
Proponents of “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” have long argued that lifting the ban on homosexuals serving openly in the military might create division within the ranks.
