Through compelling photographs and interviews made over three years on numerous road trips across the US, Vincent Cianni (born 1952) has created an important historical record of the struggles of gay and lesbian men and women in the US military. As the Human Rights Commission attests, the US military has a long history of human and civil rights abuses against homosexuals, with harassment and discrimination frequently resulting in lost careers and damaged lives. In many cases, these men and women had attained high rank, received numerous medals and held top-level jobs that were essential to the military. With essays by Alan Steinman, Don Bramer and Alison Nordstrom that shed light on the political, personal and cultural consequences of the ban, this volume reveals the stories of men and women who served in silence, suffered decades of abuses and often were penalized and prohibited from receiving the benefits accorded them for serving in the military.
