SLDN & OutServe tap transgender Army veteran to lead newly combined LGBT military organization

News release from SLDN and OutServe:

Allyson Robinson, 1994 West Point graduate, will become first OutServe-SLDN Executive Director

(WASHINGTON, DC) Servicemembers Legal Defense Network (SLDN) and OutServe, the association of actively serving LGBT military personnel, today announced the selection of Army veteran Allyson Robinson to lead the newly combined organization. Robinson [who is transgender] assumes the post as the two organizations are slated to finalize their combination this weekend. The combination was announced in July.

“I am honored to lead the new OutServe-SLDN into this next phase of advocacy and action on behalf of our brave LGBT service members, veterans, and their families. Until they are guaranteed equal opportunity, recognition, support, and benefits, our mission is incomplete. We cannot and will not leave them behind,” said Robinson, who departs her position at Human Rights Campaign (HRC) to take the helm of the new organization today.
