The United Kingdom’s Royal Air Force has paid to join the gay lobby group Stonewall’s “Diversity Champions” program in hopes of making itself more attractive to gay and lesbian potential recruits.
The force also is launching a major advertising campaign in the gay press, with a budget of tens of thousands of dollars.
Member organizations of the Stonewall program are expected to do such things as sponsor gay-pride events, create a gay/lesbian/bisexual staff organization, and extend pensions to same-sex couples.
“The Armed Forces are committed to establishing a culture and climate where those who choose to disclose their sexual orientation can do so without risk of abuse or intimidation,” an unnamed Ministry of Defence spokesman told London’s Telegraph newspaper.
