Description
The Palm Center is a think tank which promotes the study of LGBTQ people in the armed forces. This collection focuses on the Palm Center's role in repealing the Clinton-era "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" (DADT) policy on LGBTQ servicepeople, allowing them to come out and serve openly; some material also concerns the military service of transgender people.
Background
The Palm Center is a think tank which promotes the study of LGBTQ people in the armed forces. Founded in 1998 as the Center for the Study of Sexual Minorities in the Military, it was renamed in 2006 to honor donor Michael Palm. The research of scholars from the Palm Center has been extensively published, both in the scholarly and popular press, and the organization played a role in the repeal of Don't Ask, Don't Tell.
