Still Waiting

Lt. Dan Choi and Capt. Jim Pietrangelo
are scheduled to appear in a Washington court today after handcuffing themselves to the White House gates to protest
the military's "don't ask, don't tell" policy. The action followed a
Human Rights Campaign rally to repeal DADT where Choi sent a message to
President Obama: "Enough talk."

"I am still standing, I am still fighting, I am still speaking out, and I am still gay." - Choi
