Activists Protest Military Gay Ban

Link Haven Herrin is young, strong and smart. She can run five miles and was valedictorian of her college class. The perfect military recruit! Except that she's queer, of course.

Behind The Tone interviews Haven Herrin, co-director of the Soul Force Equality Ride. Like the Freedom Rides of the 50's and 60's, the Soul Force Equality Ride is a student-led effort that takes young adults into epicenters of intolerance and oppression to make a better tomorrow. In going on this journey, the Equality Riders draw inspiration from those Freedom Riders over forty years ago.

At each stop along the route, the Equality Riders will present a powerful case for schools and students to accept their fellow gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender classmates.

It's an amazing interview you won't want to miss.
