RAF Gay Pride

Discussion in 'The ARRSE Hole' started by Maj_Boothroyd, Sep 2, 2004.

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. According to various newspapers, our esteemed friends in light are to target the homosexual community of Manchester and the northwest. They are putting a float in the Manchester Gay Pride parade, with 8 officers on it. 8O

    Are these common or garden recruiting officers sent to do a job of work? Gay officers specially selected for the job and given recruitment training? Or does the RAF have a pool of gay recruiting officers? The permutations are endless!! :roll:

    Those of you fortunate to serve in Joint units must be laughing all the way to the pile of free condoms! :lol:

    More Rock-ape baiting anyone?

    Let the slagging commence..... :lol:

    PS can somebody cleverer than me add a poll!
  2. Selected? wouldn't they have just taken any eight at random? :D
  3. I agree with your general cynicism Major.

    My Dad was a Crab photographer in the late 50s & 60s. One of his more onerous duties was to take (Army + RAF) Police evidence Pics of suspected gays rear ends.

    He said it was revolting.

    I think I'll agree with him on this one.

    However ....

    The way things are going, probably the best that can be hoped for is a"don't ask, don't tell" policy.

    But to actively recruit gays, will, in my opinion lead to more disillusion among the serving ranks and even more riducule from the public.
