Campaigners for gay people to be allowed to serve openly in the US military received a huge boost today when a Pentagon survey of service members found morale would not suffer from reform. The Pentagon report , published today, anticipated only isolated incidents of opposition. The defence secretary, Robert Gates, at a press conference, said the survey was not a poll on the issue but to determine the impact of changing the law. He said the survey showed reform "would not be the wrenching, traumatic change many had feared" but he identified a major stumbling block, namely the higher levels of opposition among combat units, in particular the Marines, and said this was a matter for concern among military chiefs at a time when fighting two wars. Gates recommended the Senate support legislation to end the existing policy. The fate of the proposed legislation hangs in the balance, with reformers not yet having the necessary 60 votes to pass through the member Senate before Christmas.

When asked about their social support network, gay men report being less connected than lesbians on every relationship type tested, from friends, to partners, to neighbors. This may put gay men at greater risk of isolation and potentially influences the types of services they will need later in life. Transgender or gender expansive individuals are also less likely to be connected to sources of social support. Just under one-third of those surveyed live in big urban cities, while the rest reside in suburbs, medium-sized cities, or small towns and rural areas. Survey responses suggest that community size is less important than LGBT-friendliness when it comes to living in a supportive community.
