“Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” Repealed

After 16 years of coordinated and dedicated work done by Gill Foundation grantees, President Obama signs into law the repeal of “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell,” allowing gay, lesbian, and bisexual service members to proudly and openly serve their country.

With a founding grant from the Gill Foundation, One Colorado Education Fund launches as a powerful, statewide organization dedicated to advancing equality for LGBT Coloradans.

At the federal level, Health and Human Services Secretary Sebelius and President Obama usher in the Affordable Care Act, of which Section 1557 protects LGBT people from discrimination in healthcare.
