On this day of honoring those who fight to protect and preserve our democracy we’d like to shine a spotlight on a new organization that serves current gay military and our gay veterans. The Modern Military Association of America, or MMAA for short, focuses on “education, advocacy and support for the LGBTQ military and veteran community.” Here is some copy from their official website about who they are and what they stand for…
The Modern Military Association of America (MMAA) is the nation’s largest organization of LGBTQ service members, military spouses, veterans, their families and allies. Formed through the merger of the American Military Partner Association and OutServe-SLDN, we are a united voice for the LBGTQ military and veteran community.
As a non-partisan, non-profit (501c3) organization, we are working to make a real difference in the lives of our modern military families through education, advocacy and support. We also provide free, direct legal services for the LGBTQ and HIV+ military and veteran community.https://modernmilitary.org/about/
This is a relatively new organization since the actual merger of the two organizations happened in May of this year. OurServ-SLDN came across my radar a few years ago when we were known as Queer Landia. I admire what they stand for and what they do and I wish them all the luck in the world. It seems MMAA is a marriage made in heaven and I look forward to keeping an eye on their successes and spotlighting them more here on GAYLANDIA. If you’d like to read more about this organization, or make a donation to their great cause and mission, you can after the jump.
