DADT One-man Show a Hit in NYC
by Chris Narloch

Here's hoping that Marc Wolf brings his potent one-man show about DADT and the U.S. military's gay ban back to the West Coast, and soon. In the meantime, any Outword readers who find themselves in NYC before Oct. 4th will want to see this powerful show there, where it was extended by popular demand.

Another American: Asking and Telling, which has had successful runs around the country, including at the New Conservatory Theatre in San Francisco, is a living, breathing theatrical document of various views on DADT, most of them from people inside the military, or who used to be in the military, both gay and straight.

Yesterday, in Washington, D.C., the U.S. Senate blocked the vote to begin debate on the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) which contains an amendment calling for repeal of the Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell (DADT) policy.

The vote, 56 – 43, was four votes short of the needed 60 votes to stop a filibuster by Senators opposed to repealing DADT. At this point, the NDAA would be put on hold until after the midterm elections.
