When: 21 Oct, 3-5pm 2000 Where: Kirkland House Junior Common Room (follow the signs) ------------- BACKGROUND: Mr. May participated in ROTC when he attended Claremont College. He entered active duty in 1993 and served as a Lieutenant in the Army until 1995. He continued to serve in the Reserves. In 1998, Mr. May ran for office as the State Rep. for Phoenix. He was elected as an openly-gay, Republican Mormon. In 1999, Mr. May delivered an impassioned speech on the House floor in defense of a state bill extending health benefits to same-sex partners of state employees. Shortly thereafter, he was called into active duty for deployment to the Balkans. On April of 1999, the *Phoenix New Times* profiled him. By July, the clipping had found its way to Reserve Command. In August, the Army launched a formal inquiry for violations of "Don't Ask, Don't Tell, Don't Pursue." On 16 September, 2000, Mr. May received an honorable discharge from the military. He is one among the ranks of over a thousand who will be discharged by the end of this year.
