About this Event
The book Fighting with Pride marks the 20th anniversary of the lifting of the British Armed Forces ‘gay ban’ on 12 January 2020. It brings together a selection of stories from LGBTQ service men and women who have served in the Armed Forces since the Second World War. Their profoundly moving testaments demonstrate their loyalty, their courage on the battlefield, and their unswerving sense of right and wrong even in the face of personal costs.
