CIA Signs on to Gay Military Convention


The Central Intelligence Agency has signed on to be a cosponsor of a convention for gay military personnel this fall.

The CIA and Amazon will lead a discussion on post-military careers at the 2011 OutServe Armed Forces Leadership Summit. The CIA and other agencies, such as the FBI, recruit openly gay agents. J.D. Smith, the codirector of Outserve and an active member of the military, said this will be an integral step for the nation after "don't ask, don't tell."

"Our first priority is to support the military in moving forward in a post-repeal environment; but eventually all our members will transition to civilian life," he said in a statement. "OutServe is determined to help veterans transition successfully. We're very happy that the CIA is a possible future career path for our veterans, who have already shown their desire to serve this country."

The summit will take place October 13-16 at New York New York Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas.
