The repeal of the Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell policy was not accompanied by any guidance as to how this change would affect military culture and LGB service members and veterans, or the professionals who will work with them. Why it is vital for MPFC to provide LGBT Cultural Competency Training? The MPFC Community Survey (2011-2012) showed that over half of the respondents agree that coming out would put them and members of their family at risk for negative reactions within the military community, even though Don’t Ask Don’t Tell has been repealed.
