Tiera Craig a veteran, entrepreneur, activist and community leader. Serving in the United States Army from 1995 to 2004, Tiera navigated through the Veterans Compensation Appeals process and after helping a few soldiers that were having issues with the process and the feeling that they could not openly talk about their issues of being gay to another VSA she began Rainbow Veterans Project.
The Rainbow Veterans Project aims to provide resource, advocacy, and training to Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender Veterans. We will ensure that LGBT veterans understand all benefits and entitlements due to them and their families. We will work with VA Medical Centers, Veterans Benefits Administration, Legal Aid organizations, Employment and Training organizations, and all other available resources to serve as the HUB for LGBT veterans and their families. We will also provide social outings and events to maintain and rebuild comradery among Soldiers, Marines, Sailors, and Airmen in a safe and affirming environment.They model ourselves after successful Veterans' Service Organizations except we will cater to the unique needs of LGBT veterans in a Post-DADT society.
The Rainbow Veteran Project seeks to be recognized and utilized as the premier LGBT Veterans' Service Organization in the country. They want to ensure that we are able to provide all necessary services/resources to any veteran seeking assistance.

According to wikipedia, LGBT pride or gay pride is the concept that lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) people should be proud of their sexual orientation and gender identity. The movement has three main premises: that people should be proud of their sexual orientation and gender identity, that diversity is a gift, and that sexual orientation and gender identity are inherent and cannot be intentionally altered. The use of the abbreviated gay pride and pride have since become mainstream and shorthand expressions inclusive of all individuals in various LGBT communities.
Although the list continues to grow of of companies that have thrown their support behind the lgbtq equal rights movement. Still some companies remain steadfast in their desire to maintain the standard, "Keep it to yourself" mentality. DONT ASK DONT TELL yet lives in some circles.

Military Service Men and Women,cwt4r, Ina, Michelle and Terry Boi would like to thank you for your service to this country. You have protected our rights, died for our freedom, and endured horrors that many of us could never image. So when a veteran was kicked out of the military for being gay, then asked to be silent about it in order to keep his benefits was that our countries way of saying thank you?

Then how has life changed for our LGBTQ Veterans since the end of DADT and Supreme Court decision on DOMA. We will have that conversation with our guest Tiera Craig!
