Sara Isaacson was an ROTC student at University of North Carolina–Chapel Hill until she came out to her commander as a lesbian. Now 21-year-old Isaacson, who is originally from Wisconsin, owes nearly $80,000 to the U.S. Army for repayment of a scholarship for seven semesters as an out-of-state student.
Sara joined us on SistersTalk Radio to discuss her coming out story and what she’s doing to deal with this huge financial debt she accumulated because she decided to tell the truth about her sexuality.
