Texas A&M’s Corps of Cadets is the largest uniformed body of students in the nation outside the U.S. service academies. Currently, around 2,000 young men and women are Corps members at Texas A&M. Not one of those 2000 young men and women who have honorably answered our nation’s call to service is allowed to come out as a gay or lesbian person. If they do, their military careers and education pursuits come to an end.
There are literally thousands of college campuses where gay and lesbian people must remain in closets of fear because of the ROTC if they want to serve their country. This discrimination is immoral and unconstitutional. It must end. The Soulforce Equality Ride is coming to Texas A&M to bring light to this discrimination.
We call on Texas A&M students and concerned citizens in the College Station area to stand with us as we call for an end to the ban on gays in the military.
On Wednesday March 29 at 11 a.m. there will be an energetic rally in front of the Sanders Corps Center. All are welcome. To view a map of this location click here.

Join us at the Rudder Tower in room 510 from 8:30 to 10 p.m. to discuss LGBT issues relevant to Texas A&M. This forum is for Texas A & M students and Soulforce Equality Riders.
Sign up to stand with us today and you will receive specifics on time and location via email.
Tell your government that legalized discrimination is unacceptable in your United States.
