Senate Committee Advances Nomination of First Openly Gay Military Service Leader

by Maureen McCarty March 10, 2016

Today the Senate Armed Services Committee advanced the nomination of Eric Fanning to serve as Secretary of the U.S. Army. Fanning could soon make history as the first openly gay leader of a U.S. military service. 

It now moves to the full Senate for confirmation.

In September, HRC praised President Obama’s nomination of Fanning.  

“Eric Fanning is the perfect choice to lead the world’s best-trained, most dedicated, and formidable Army,” said HRC President Chad Griffin. “Considering the tremendous struggles that LGBT Americans have faced within the Department of Defense, Fanning’s nomination is deeply significant.  This is a sign of hope and a demonstration of continued progress towards fairness and equality in our nation’s armed forces.”  

HRC urges the Senate to quickly confirm this remarkably experienced candidate to this important post.

by Dan Tracer October 26, 2016

Leave it to a deodorant company to get what so many elected officials in this country can’t quite wrap their heads around — that there is no “one way” to express gender. And while right wing politicians and talking heads spend no shortage of time obsessing over how they, and most importantly their pure and [...]
