The US Senate voted on Saturday to repeal the Pentagon's "don't ask don't tell" policy, which forced gays and lesbians in the military to hide their sexual orientation or risk being discharged. But many questions still remain about when and how the new policy will be implemented. We discuss what the repeal vote means for the military, and for the gay rights movement. Guests include Nathaniel Frank, author of Unfriendly Fire: How the Gay Ban Undermines the Military and Weakens America; and former Major Mike Almy, United States Air Force, who was discharged under "don't ask don't tell."
