The 1995 film, “Serving in Silence: The Margarethe Cammermeyer Story“, starring Glenn Close and Judy Davis, based upon Colonel Cammermeyer’s autobiography of the same name. The film tells the story of her legally overturning her honorable discharge for being a lesbian, and serving as one of the few openly gay or lesbian people in the U.S. military while the Don’t Ask Don’t Tell policy was in effect, until her retirement in 1997.

With Andrea Meyerson’s help, we are thrilled to announce that Colonel Margarethe Cammermeyer, famous for serving in the National Guard and successfully challenging the Don’t Ask Don’t Tell policy in the United States, will be joining our cruise celebrating LGBT Military Veterans and Veterans of the Stonewall Revolution June 8 – 15, 2019.

Colonel Margarethe Cammermeyer (Retired)

Women on a Roll and Pride of the Ocean will be honoring Colonel Cammermeyer for her extraordinary service to the United States of America and her service to the LGBT community at a special cocktail party for our guests, which you are cordially invited to!

“We are your daughters, your sisters, your sons, your nurses, your mechanics, your athletes, your police, your politicians, your fathers, your doctors, your soldiers, your mothers. We live with you, care for you, help you, protect you, teach you, love you, and need you. All we ask is that you let us. We are no different. We want to serve, like you. Need love, like you. Feel pain, like you. And we deserve justice, like you.”
– Margarethe Cammermeyer

In light of today being International Holocaust Remembrance Day 2019, did you know that according to the Contact Hypothesis Theory, the more times a viewer sees/interacts with a minority in film (preferably in varied depictions), the less prejudice they will have towards that group? It is more important than ever to embrace this theory and continue to resist.
