          A Discussion about the military, ROTC and state politics
	  with AZ State Rep. Steve May,
	  the first speaker in a monthly series.
                         Sponsored by The Open Gate.

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.
