Contributor Jeff Sheng's Don't Ask Don't Tell photography has been making waves all over the nation lately - from a special ABC News report to regular coverage in the blogosphere and sneak peeks of new photos here on Bilerico Project. Jeff makes it a point to memorize the backstory behind the photos - the personal stories of the service members - and during his recent exhibit opening in DC, I had a chance to talk to him about those stories.

Here's a brief preview of Jeff's show. It's so well done it seemed almost lazy to just throw up a short interview with him, so I decided to make a trailer of the interview to help generate some interest.

After the jump you'll find the photo we talk about and the short interview we did about it - including all of the info on how to see the exhibit yourself if you're in the area. It closes tomorrow evening so you'll have to hustle if you want to see it before it's gone.

I went to that exhibit.
VERY powerful, beautiful pictures. It just reminded me all over again, the gay vets that I know personally as well as my gratitude that there are such exceptionally brave and morally strong people willing to serve a country that's denying them the rights they deserve and rights they protect for others they don't have themselves.

If I could. I'd hug and kiss and virtually genuflect in front of these service people.

It better be damn SOON this country throws out DADT. All this waffling is cowardly unto itself.

When were you there? I'd have loved to have finally met you in person!
