"'''Don't ask, don't tell'''" ('''DADT''') was the official United States policy on [[Sexual orientation and the United States military|gays serving in the military]] from December 21, 1993, to September 20, 2011. The policy prohibited military personnel from discriminating against or harassing [[closeted]] [[Homosexuality|homosexual]] or [[Bisexuality|bisexual]] service members or applicants, while barring [[Coming out|openly gay]], [[lesbian]], or bisexual persons from military service. The restrictions were mandated by United States federal law {{USPL|103|160}} ({{usc|10|654}}). The policy prohibited people who "demonstrate a propensity or intent to engage in homosexual acts" from serving in the armed forces of the United States, because their presence "would create an unacceptable risk to the high standards of morale, good order and discipline, and [[unit cohesion]] that are the essence of military capability".<ref>{{uscsub|10|654|b}}</ref> The act prohibited any homosexual or bisexual person from disclosing his or her [[sexual orientation]] or from speaking about any homosexual relationships, including marriages or other familial attributes, while serving in the United States armed forces. The act specified that service members who disclose that they are homosexual or engage in homosexual conduct should be separated (discharged) except when a service member's conduct was "for the purpose of avoiding or terminating military service" or when it "would not be in the best interest of the armed forces".<ref>{{usc|10|654(e)}}</ref>

The "don't ask" part of the DADT policy specified that superiors should not initiate investigation of a servicemember's orientation without witnessing disallowed behaviors, though credible evidence of homosexual behavior could be used to initiate an investigation. Unauthorized investigations and harassment of suspected servicemen and women led to an expansion of the policy to "don't ask, don't tell, don't pursue, don't harass".<ref>{{cite web|url=http://www.uscg.mil/d9/D9Legal/docs/05_2010MAYNewsletterDontAskDontTell.pdf |title=United States Coast Guard Ninth District Legal Office '&#39;The Legal Brief'&#39; "Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell, Don’t Pursue, Don’t Harass: Reference (a): Personnel Manual, COMDTINST M1000.6, Ch. 12.E"., May 2010 |format=PDF |accessdate=October 23, 2010}}</ref>
