Right, I have been speaking to some folk who have said that there is some sort of parade that Gays and TGs are taking part in? Not heard of it myself, but then again, not my type of thing. Apparently serving Gays and TGs who wish to attend the parade can wear uniform (as long as it is not after the parade and during the p1ss up!) to represent the British Forces (!!!!!), AND it would appear, from what my contacts are informing me, that those wishing to attend such a gay and TG Fest are entitled to do so at public expense. So, when someone in the forces has to return to the UK to bury a fallen friend who has died/been killed on duty or in action, or wants to attend formal regimental reunions, why the FCUK do they have to pay for it themselves? Disgusted? In agreeance? Discuss..... And no, don't even go there with a pathetic 'Prejudice against gays, lesbians, halfs and halfs line!' Cos I am not, I am merely interested in other Arrsers views and whether there is a legit excuse for this or has someone who gave the go ahead been afraid to say 'No'.
