MSNBC's Thomas Roberts will travel to Washington, DC this weekend to host the Servicemembers Legal Defense Network's annual dinner. According to SLDN Executive Director Aubrey Sarvis, this year's dinner is extra special for the organization, as it is both the 20th anniversary of the dinner and "the first year when lesbian, gay and bisexual active servicemembers will be able to attend the dinner, be out and not face fear of reprisal" (since the repeal of Don't Ask, Don't Tell in September 2011).
Thomas, who Sarvis says has "been a force in the coverage of LGBT military servicemembers,'' sat down with DC-based publication Metro Weekly to talk about the evening and his hopes for the LGBT community in the future. You can read the full interview here.
Don't miss Thomas on MSNBC Live, weekdays at 11 am ET.
