Jeremy Johnson ’12, Sociology, in Baltimore OUTloud

“The Telling Project” uses local veterans to share stories about the military experience. When the project comes to Baltimore next week it will for the first time include a veteran impacted by “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” (DADT). Jeremy Johnson ’12, sociology, is a Navy veteran discharged in 2007 under DADT who currently serves as public relations director for The 6th Branch, veteran-led community service organization. “We create new productions in every city,” says writer Jonathan Wei, in a Baltimore OUTloud article on the show, “because these ‘issues’ are most important when they are human, rather than abstract. Jeremy speaks eloquently, with nuance, compassion and intelligence to ‘DADT’ and its ramifications. But most importantly, Jeremy speaks.” The show will appear at the Walters Art Museum on April 27 and Towson University on May 6-7. See www.thetellingproject.org for details.
