A poignant new video which aims to draw attention to how gay and lesbian soldiers continue to face discrimination even after the repeal of "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" is making the blogosphere rounds.

Titled "Second Skin," the clip honors "all who have served our nation so honorably; but we reserve a special remembrance for all those who have provided the same service, taken the same risks, and made the same sacrifices to keep us safe, yet are treated as second-class citizens by the country they are sworn to protect," according to veteran and OutServe-SLDN executive director Allyson Robinson.

More specifically, "Second Skin" -- which was produced by Freedom to Marry and OutServe-SLDN -- hopes to show how LGBT soldiers are treated differently because of the Defense of Marriage Act.
