"Gay Air Force Alumni Create Visibility At Academy"

Gay and lesbian alumni of the Air Force Academy are using the repeal of Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell to create more visibility at upcoming events. Known as Blue Alliance, the alumni group can now identify as an “affinity group” by the Association of Graduates and hold events on campus. They will proudly display a rainbow flag at an upcoming football tailgate, something they have not been able to do before. In addition, several high-ranking academy officials have accepted invitations to their annual dinner, including Gen. Dana Born, dean of faculty, and Adis Vila, the school’s chief diversity officer.
