Introspective with Dan Choi

Former U.S. Army infantry officer Dan Choi became a key activist in the repeal of the U.S. military's Don't Ask, Don't Tell policy when he came out on "The Rachel Maddow Show."

Choi, who served in combat in the Iraq war between 2006-2007, appeared on "The Rachel Maddow Show" in March 2009 and became a pioneer in the fight against Don't Ask, Don't Tell, which forbade lesbian, gay and bisexual service members from serving openly. From that point on, Choi accepted hundreds of interviews and continued speaking against the policy. His efforts led to Congress putting an end to the discriminatory policy and President Obama signing a bill repealing "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" in 2010.

In this film, Choi reflects on his journey as an activist, as well as a gay man seeking acceptance from his conservative parents. Choi talks openly about the emotional and mental toll of being a full time activist, which resulted in his hospitalization for mental health treatment. He also discusses how the Christian values taught by his Southern Baptist minister father helped him get through the difficult times, even when he felt abandoned and ostracized by his Christian community.
