Lesbian heads super-secret spy agency

From Stars and Stripes

A Dayton native and the first openly gay commander of the National Air and Space Intelligence Center took over the top leadership post of the secretive agency that provides intelligence reports to the White House, Congress and even ground troops in combat.

Col. Leah G. Lauderback, 42, became the leader of NASIC at a change of command ceremony Wednesday in front of about 700 people gathered at the National Museum of the U.S. Air Force. She replaces Col. Aaron M. Prupas, who leaves for a high-level defense intelligence post at the Pentagon.

A 21-year veteran specializing in cyberspace defense, Lauderback had been providing essential service to our nation, all while not-asking, not-telling. She married her partner a month ago.

(But you have to know that they knew all along, right?)

From security risk to running the show.

Makes you wonder about all of the things antigay heterosexuals– and not so heterosexual antigay heterosexuals– say about us, don’t it?

And to think that for decades, just a whiff that you *might* be gay would keep you from getting that top secret clearance. I’d like to high-5 this lady.
