OutServe-SLDN is a non-profit organization, with a network of more than 60 chapters of 6,000+ actively serving Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, & Transgender military professionals who come from all services and are stationed around the world – and our growth is exploding! OutServe is a leader in providing public information regarding issues that affect actively serving LGBT military personnel, and our digital and print publication – the first of its kind – is distributed to select military installations world-wide, absolutely free!
The bi-monthly OutServe Magazine highlights the contributions that actively serving LGBTs are making to the United States military, discusses and educates readers about LGBT policies and issues, and advocates for the continued fight for equality for all Americans. Our first electronic-only issue of the magine that was distributed in March 2011 to our network members, as well as released to the press, had over 10,000 impressions within the first 48 hours and was met with an overwhelming show of support from the public, the Department of Defense, and the Obama administration. News organizations such as MSNBC, CNN, Der Spiegel, Stars and Stripes, and Military Times reached out to cover the launch, and radio shows such as the Stephanie Miller Show and NPR’s Tell Me More had our members on-air to talk about the magazine, DADT repeal, and OutServe-SLDN in general. Our September 2011 Repeal Edition had a quarter of a million views and our total circulation is now up to over 100,000 readers per issue. We are confident that our readership will continue to multiply with future print versions and a rapidly expanding membership.
