Uniforms allowed at gay pride event

June 15, 2008|From Times Wire Reports

Britain's military says soldiers and air force members will be allowed to wear their uniforms to this year's gay pride march in London.

The military said it would permit British Army and Royal Air Force personnel to show off their military affiliation in the July 5 parade.

The decision brings the forces in line with the Royal Navy, which allows sailors to participate in uniform.

Britain began allowing gay men and women to serve openly in the military in 2000.
