Windy City Queercast
WCQ615 Gay Navy Reserve Lee Reinhart

Host: Amy Matheny

It is freezing in Chicago but Amy is heating up the Queercast with a review of the new show, Empire! It's hot hot hot!

Guest: Re-Enlisted Gay Navy Veteran Lee Reinhart joins Amy again on the Queercast. Lee discusses the many changes in the military since the repeal of Don't Ask Don't Tell. He shares his incredible story of getting re-enlisted, his first assignment, and receiving orders to go to Afghanistan as a Logistics Specialist. Lee is the President of the Chicago Chapter of AVER (American Veterans for Equal Rights). His chapter will be installing the first monument dedicated to the service of LGBT Veterans in Abraham Lincoln National Cemetery. They are taking donations to cover the $20,000 cost of the monument. To help, please send a check to:
American Veterans for Equal Rights (Put Monument Donation On The Memo Line)
P.O. Box 29317
Chicago, IL 60629


Music Featured on This Queercast: Empire Cast - "You're So Beautiful (White Party Version) [feat. Jussie Smolletti]" and Ed Sheeran - "Thinking Out Loud"
