Lt. Dan Choi Convicted for ‘Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell’ Protest

"The human bonds that can be formed by courage transcends generations. All that racism, homophobia we defeat with skin on skin." -Lt. Dan Choi going in for trial this morning, holding hands with other civil rights leaders.

Choi was convicted and fined $100 for “failure to obey” in conjunction with a November 2010 protest of the since-repealed DADT policy outside the White House. “I believe the White House sidewalk is a free-speech zone,” he said.
