Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual Service Members Memorial


Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual Service Members Memorial

The Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual Service Members Memorial was established to honor and recognize those service members who have lost their lives in the line of duty. Gay service members make significant contributions to this country without due recognition, those who make the ultimate sacrifice deserve a place where their service and honor can be celebrated without denial or exclusion.

If you have lost a lesbian, gay or bisexual loved one to military conflict, consider adding their name to this memorial. If you have lost a dedicated soldier in service to their country, recognize not just their sacrifice but the fact that they were also gay. If you lost a partner in action add their name here where your grief will be duly recognized.

Contact us at memorial@gaymilitary.org or (805) 893-5664 to submit the name of your loved one to the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual Service Members Memorial.

Sponsored by the Center for the Study of Sexual Minorities in the Military and the GLBT Historical Society. CSSMM is an official research unit at the University of California, Santa Barbara and its mission is to promote the study of gays, lesbian and other sexual minorities in the armed forces.
