serving in the military, across the board,
and their sexuality has no impact whatsoever
on how they do their job.
That's the same with other diverse groups as well,
such as gender, being female,
or the BAME, the British Asian minority ethnic groups.
Those things that make us a little bit more diverse,
because it's a minority, have no impact
on the way we do our job in the military,
it just makes us who we are in the military.
I have many friends in the military
who are gay, lesbian, LGBT,
identifying with either of those.
I'm very fortunate that most of them, that I know of,
have never had any major issues
being in the military, with their sexuality
or the way that they identify themselves.
That's not saying that I'm sure
there aren't issues that happen,
but we have good, solid leadership networks in place
to deal with them, and good chain of commands
to deal with any issues that arise, should they arise.
We have diversity and inclusion advisors, for instance,
who are there for that purpose,
to brief people and make sure that everyone is
aware of current policy, and to remind us all
that we should be very inclusive in the military.
