certainly in my time in the military
is there's a lot more confidence now to be yourself at work,
and it's not something that I think needs
to be a limitation to anybody.
Certainly when I joined up,
there was a lot of people, I imagine,
who probably felt quite uncomfortable being out
and had quite, there was sort of a legacy feeling perhaps
in the more senior ranks
who were uncomfortable with certain things,
but that's fading out.
As society has changed and adapt,
the military's changing and adapting to cater
and to support everybody.
It's a lot more reflective of society nowadays.
And in many respects,
it can probably be a more safe place to work
than (laughs) civilian life really, I'd imagine.
People are joining up now,
and they're openly identifying LGBT+.
It's not something that they should think is a limitation
to what they wanna do in service really.
It's not something that should be
the first thing on their mind.
If they've got a job or a role
that they wanna do in the military and they wanna pursue it,
then regardless of what your background is,
they should pursue that role.
