OutServe-Servicemembers Legal Defense Network (SLDN) is the association for actively serving LGBT military personnel and veterans. OutServe-SLDN is a non-partisan, non-profit, legal services, watchdog and policy organization dedicated to bringing about full LGBT equality to America's military and ending all forms of discrimination and harassment of military personnel on the basis of sexual orientation and gender identity. OutServe-SLDN provides free and direct legal assistance to service members and veterans affected by the repealed "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" law and the prior regulatory ban on open service, as well as those currently serving who may experience harassment or discrimination. Since 1993, OutServe-SLDN's in-house legal team has responded to more than 12,000 requests for assistance.
