Distinguished Speaker Series: Lt. Dan Choi

When: Mon., Dec. 1, 7 p.m. 2014

Dan Choi was such a talented student at West Point that he quickly became fluent in Arabic. However, after coming out on The Rachel Maddow Show, he was discharged from the Army, prompting Choi to become the national face for the repeal of Don't Ask, Don't Tell, and a prominent LGBT activist. An interesting piece published late last year by the American Prospect tells a tale of Choi in flux, now that DADT is gone. He still makes a living as a speaker, however, and will talk at 7 tonight at Colorado State University-Pueblo (2200 Bonforte Blvd., colostate-pueblo.edu, free admission). He'll probably like Colorado, as he told American Prospect at the time that he smokes so much cannabis he "can't tell the difference between being high and not." — Bryce Crawford
