American Veterans for Equal Rights (AVER)

American Veterans for Equal Rights (AVER) is a non-profit, non-partisan, chapter-based Veterans Service Organization of active, reserve, and veteran service members dedicated to full and equal rights and equitable treatment for all present and former members of the U.S. Armed Forces, especially the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender current and prior military personnel who have been historically disenfranchised by armed forces policy and discriminatory laws governing military service and benefits.

AVER is in the community to inform all that they are GLBT Veterans who have served our country, honorably in uniform. They “speak for our brothers and sisters in uniform who can not speak out. We support lifting the ban against GLBT people serving openly in the military and an end to harassment and discrimination.” Visit their website for more info.
