NBC News how welcome they felt in the Navy.“I have many LGBT friends here, and if you can stand at attention properly and speak with proper etiquette, that’s what it comes down to in the Navy,” Kelley said. “No one tells me I’m too feminine.
I’ve not once had a bad experience as a gay man in the military.”In November 2022, Kelley announced they’d been recruited as a “Digital Ambassador” by the Navy to help boost recruitment.
Presumably, Navy superiors felt Kelley promotes the fact LGBTQ people are very welcome in today’s armed forces.A handful of Digital Ambassadors were used.
None were paid and no official marketing material was produced featuring them. They simply promoted themselves on their own social media and talked about being in the Navy.A post shared by Harpy Daniels ⚓.
