Did you know that the District of Columbia has an LGBTQ+ Veterans Community Outreach Relations Specialist?  Fallon Williams has joined the DC Mayor’s Office of Veteran Affairs. While serving in this role, Fallon’s key initiatives include advocating for research data identifying the LGBTQ+ Veteran Population, linking 114,000 service members discharged under Don’t Ask Don’t Tell to discharge upgrade resources, and ensuring LGBTQ+ veterans have safe spaces to receive the benefits and care they are entitled to.

Understanding Gender Pronouns – You’ve likely seen pronouns after some people’s email signatures or names on Zoom. Sharing our gender pronouns are not just a new trend. By being mindful of pronouns in our everyday life, we are creating a culture of inclusion for LGBTQ youth and adults alike.
