Doing Our Part to Change the World One Movie at a Time

“Don't Ask, Don't Tell” was only an added layer of complication


Of over 380 known gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender US Naval Academy Alumni, more than 200 have come “Out of Annapolis” as the LGBT alumni of the US Naval Academy. Many other LGBT alumni remain “in the closet” serving in silence while on active duty in the service of their country as officers in the US Navy and US Marine Corps.

This film explores the lives of many of these alumni, how the US Naval Academy shaped their character, their enduring strong bond to the Academy and share their experiences while at Annapolis and while serving in the naval service as an LGBT officer, both pre- and post- “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell.”
