OUTServe goes public

by Shaun Knittel - SGN Associate Editor

OutServe, the underground network of Gay and Lesbian actively serving military members, announced November 29 the worldwide locations and contact information for each of its 27 chapters - including the chapter for those based in Iraq and Afghanistan.

'Making OutServe chapters available in these hopefully last critical weeks of the 'Don't Ask, Don't Tell' debate will allow the media access to speak confidentially with Gay and Lesbian servicemembers and regional OutServe leadership, who will be able to talk about their hopes and plans for a post-DADT military, one where they can serve openly and with integrity,' said JD Smith, OutServe co-director. 'Post-repeal, we anticipate these chapters will serve as points of contact for military personnel who wish to reach out to actively serving Gay and Lesbian military members as a resource and as colleagues.'

According to OutServe officials, the organization currently has more than 1,200 members worldwide. OUTServe's largest regional chapters are those in Southern California and Germany, with 110 and 83 members, respectively. OutServe's Afghanistan/Iraq chapter has 50 members. The organization's average chapter size is 45 members.

OutServe chapters in the continental United States include Alabama, Arizona, Northern California, Southern California, Colorado, Florida, Georgia, Kansas, Nebraska, New England, North Carolina, North Dakota, Oklahoma, Service Academies, Texas, Virginia, Washington state, and Washington, D.C.

Worldwide chapters include: Afghanistan/Iraq, Cuba, Diego Garcia, Germany, Guam, Italy, Japan, Kuwait, and United Kingdom. For more information, go to www.outserve.org.
