Coverboy: Shane

Having served three years in the Army, Shane was let go, not because he was out, but due to a medical condition (exercise-induced asthma). Now he’s studying nursing at Strafford University in Falls Church. When he’s not hitting the books, the 23-year-old Brandywine, Md.-native can be found dancing at Town or Cobalt. In thinking about the road ahead, Shane would like to see Don’t Ask Don’t Tell repealed. ”I have a lot of gay friends in the Army,” he says.
