Readers may remember the story of the gay soldier who in the lead up to the repeal of “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” (DADT) has been making a video diary talking about his experiences. Now, showing his face for the first time, the active duty soldier has recorded a new video in which he makes a very important phone call.

Watch below as the very nervous young man comes out in a phone call to his father. Please note there are a couple of swears so use your discretion:
