Earlier this year, President Obama repealed the controversial Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell policy. For the first time in American history, gay, lesbian, and bisexual men and women are allowed to serve openly for their country; something their Canadian counterparts have had the right to do for years.

I served with a lot of gay people overseas,” said Travis Irons, a former member of the United States Military Police. “Some of the best soldiers I ever worked with were gay.”

Travis served with the Military Police for three years. At that time, Travis was based in Ft. Bragg, North Carolina, was married to a woman, and served a mission in Iraq.

At the time, Travis was unaware that he was gay. “I didn’t know anything,” he said, as he recounted his experiences in the U.S. Army.

After serving his mission in Iraq, Travis returned to the United States and began exploring and discovering his sexuality.

When I came back I got divorced,” Travis explained. “Then I came out.”

The former military man turned gay porn star and exotic male dancer has his own (surprising) opinions on the repeal of Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell.

“I really hope we don’t take advantage of it,” Travis explained. “I hope that just because they are allowed to come out that they don’t walk around with handbags and everything. I think it’s a good thing.”
