Can you believe we are preparing for our 5th Annual Knights Out/Spectrum Gala in just a few months? Since the repeal of Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell, Knights Out and Spectrum have been active at West Point, we’ve hosted Army/Navy tailgate activities, tailgates at West Point home football games, we’ve sent cadets to national LGBT conferences, and so much more. We have been able to do that because of the generosity of our supporters.
