Amy Ray has been speaking out for social justice as long as she has been a musician. But the lesbian folk rocker, one half of the beloved duo Indigo Girls, was still brought up short by a recent news report.

On Sept. 21, the U.S. Senate voted against moving forward on a measure to repeal the military’s “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” ban on gay service members.

“I am amazed that we are so backward about something that is already as complex as war and military service,” says Ray in an interview the next day from her North Georgia home, in advance of Indigo Girls’ Oct. 15 show at the Buckhead Theatre.
