The Armed Forces of the United States don't embrace much outside of their own, so it doesn't get closer than the US Navy, Region Southwest's official clearance for service members to wear their uniforms at the San Diego LGBT Pride parade. Now the nations boys and girls in blue can march alongside their countrymen and embrace all sides of themselves in an expression like never before.

The United States Navy, Region Southwest has officially given active duty servicemembers under its command permission to wear their uniforms in San Diego’s LGBT Pride Parade on Saturday, July 13.

The news comes only a few short days after the U.S. Supreme Court’s landmark rulings in favor of same-sex marriage.

San Diego has a strong military presence and a large LGBT community, and it is important to our LGBT servicemembers that we honor their full identity and service to our country.
