A Few of the Faces of USNA Out

With over 280 "Out" U. S. Naval Academy alumni, we know that our stories and experiences vary greatly. To put a real face on who we, the LGBT Alumni really are, many USNA Out Members have shared their stories and experiences in personal biographies here at USNA Out. As your company mates, your classmates, your shipmates, the one thing we all have in common is that our experiences at USNA have forever shaped our lives.

We have also included the biographies of some LGBT alumni who were outstanding service members and citizens who have “gone before us.”

Please read our through our stories to learn more about who we, the LGBT alumni of the US Naval Academy really are.
