- Color photograph of Helen James in her home, holding a photo album of her time in the Air Force. Six decades after the Air Force kicked her out for being a lesbian, James was finally awarded the honorable discharge. Approximately 100,000 lesbian and gay veterans were dishonorably discharged from the military since World War II; they were stigmatized, harrassed and denied crucial veterans’ benefits.
