The Telling Project

Air Date: 
April 29, 2011

NPR affiliate in Baltimore, WYPR's "The Signal" interviewed US Navy veteran Jeremy Johnson who made the tough decision to come out to his commanding officer after a ten-year military career under the ‘Don’t Ask Don’t Tell’ policy.  Jeremy talks with us this week about what went into his decision and what the repeal of the policy might mean for the future, in addition to his role in The Telling Project, a stage production that allows "real" veterans to tell their stories, in their own words, to their local community. Mr. Johnson's story is the first one in the piece to address DADT.

The final two performances will be May 6 and 7 in Baltimore at Towson University.
