Nathaniel Frank brought his national book tour to Atlanta on Thursday, talking up and signing his work that deconstructs the process and reasoning behind the military’s ban on openly gay service members.
Frank, a professor and researcher, wrote “Unfriendly Fire: How the Gay Ban Undermines America and Weakens the Military,” which makes a clear case against “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell.” The policy has come under renewed attention since the Obama administration has pledged to overturn it.
The author answered questions from an audience at Outwrite Bookstore & Coffeehouse that included several gay and lesbian veterans.
Frank’s tour received a boost from a March 9 appearance on “The Daily Show,” where he entertained host Jon Stewart and the audience as he discussed the book.
