LAS VEGAS, NV — (05-27-19) — We celebrate Memorial Day in honor of LGBTQ fallen soldiers who have scarified so much for our freedom.  For many Americans, Memorial Day is about barbecues, fireworks or simply enjoying a three-day weekend.

But for LGBTQ troops who served in the armed forces, Memorial Day represents far more.  For them, it’s a somber celebration marked by head stones, American flags and personal reflection.

Over the centuries of America’s wars, millions of LGBTQ individuals have died in combat for our great nation..
