Six former or current LGBT servicemembers who were arrested at a White House protest on Tuesday, April 20, were released from jail on Wednesday after four of them agreed to post and forfeit, which is not an admission of guilt. Two others had a trial date set for July 14.

Metro Weekly spoke with three of them Mara Boyd, Autumn Sandeen and Lt. Dan Choi after they were released. The others are James Pietrangelo, Evelyn Thomas and Larry Whitt. Choi and Pietrangelo are the two whose cases are going to trial.

The six handcuffed themselves to the fence in front of the White House in protest of what they consider insufficient action from President Barack Obama to repeal Don't Ask, Don't Tell.
