Tuesday afternoon, the Pentagon held its first ever official Gay Pride event. The 1pm EDT assembly included a keynote address from General Counsel Jeh Johnson as well as a panel discussion. During his remarks, Johnson reportedly commented that benefits equality “will get done” and that inequalities regarding benefits trouble many of the Pentagon’s leaders. He also remarked that the repeal of “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell,” which Johnson had been instrumental in phasing out, had gone better than expected.

The Pentagon livestreamed the event on their channel http://www.pentagonchannel.mil.
