Lt. Dan Choi, a discharged openly gay U.S. Army veteran who has been an outspoken critic of the military's "don't ask, don't tell" policy takes part in the Gay Pride canal parade in Amsterdam, The Netherlands, Saturday Aug. 6, 2011. The Dutch Defense Ministry is sponsoring a boat in the annual festival for the first time this year, underscoring the long-standing policy of accepting of homosexuals in the military, starkly contrasting with the "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" (DADT) policy of the US military.
