New Film on Don't Ask Don't Tell

This posting comes to us from the Detroit, MI chapter:

PFLAG Detroit's own proud mom, Suzie Symons, has announced that her independent film maker son, Johnny Symons, has produced a new documentary film Ask Not, which will be shown on PBS stations. The film explores the U.S. Military's controversial Don't Ask Don't Tell policy, which was implemented in 1993 and has resulted in approximately 12,500 gay and lesbian service members being discharged because of their sexual orientation.

If you are in the Detroit area, the film will be shown on WTVS 56.1 on Sunday, June 21 at 11:30pm.

I wish GLAAD would have made a bigger deal of PBS showing. I missed it and from the trailer it looks good.
