gay Boy Meets Boy cast member honorably discharged from Navy.
A Boy Meets Boy cast member who was booted during the first episode has been dismissed from the Navy. Michael Jason Tiner, who was known as Jason on the show, “a gay combat systems instructor for the Navy, was discharged from the military for violating the ‘Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell’ policy,” Southern Voice reports. Tiner said he “was fully aware of what would happen. I was ready for it.” He was recognized by his superiors on a commercial for the Bravo show, but independently told them “and received an honorable discharge,” the paper reports. He says the reason he “did the show is that I felt if anyone had a right to go on the show, then I did. I should have all the rights that the other 14 guys have. I was comfortable enough with who I am and with my sexuality that I was ready to face the consequences.”
