Gay Man Graces Cover of Soldier Magazine

Soldier, the magazine of the British army, is featuring a gay man on its cover for the first time.  According to Pink News, the magazine has said it is “celebrating diversity in the British Army” as “Trooper James Wharton, of the Household Cavalry Regiment, is shown wearing dress uniform complete with an Iraq medal. He appears on the cover next to the slogan ‘Pride’.”

When questioned about the US army’s continuing policy of “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell,” Trooper Wharton said, “I still can’t get my head round [it]…there will be gay soldiers in the US Army who are not being themselves.”

Let’s not forget that since DADT’s inception, 12,500 members of the US army have been dishonorably discharged for being gay.  That just isn’t right.  Way to go Britain for being progressive in your armed forces, hopefully America will take a lesson from your leadership.
