DADT is History. Street Artist TesOne Marks The Occasion



Hypocrisy of “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” Finally Laid to Rest

Street Artist TesOne just completed a brand new painting titled “Honesty is the Best Policy” to celebrate the repeal of the highly unjust Clinton-era policy toward gays and lesbians serving the US military, discriminating against it’s own citizens for 17 years.  Released on this historic day, TesOne’s new piece is pretty funny and heartwarming, to tell the truth.

Explains the artist, “Honesty is the Best Policy” is a painting I just completed honoring the repeal of “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell. While there is still a lot of work to do on that front, I think any step towards equality is worth celebrating.”

It’s also worth noting that the sentiment of “Just Married” shown here, while appropriate, draws attention to the fact that the military and all federal agencies DO NOT recognize gay marriage, thanks to another Clinton-era invention, The Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA).  No matter which state has legalized gay marriage, the federal government does not extend the same rights to married gays and lesbians, including the spouses of armed service members.
