Transgender soldiers may be allowed to serve openly in U.S. military
In a report issued earlier this week, top Pentagon officials have said that it is 'likely' that trans citizens would be allowed to serve openly in the U.S. armed forces.
The 29 page document issued by retired Major General Gale S Pollock, former acting surgeon general of the Army General Clara Adams-Ender and former US Army chief General Thomas A Kolditz, is being likened to the downfall of the 'Don't Ask Don't Tell' policy that stopped many gay and lesbian citizens serving.
Scott Mills goes on Strictly
The Radio 1 DJ is about to show us his dance moves on the BBC show Strictly Come Dancing. The presenter announced it over the airwaves yesterday, as he covered Nick Grimshaw on the breakfast show.
He confessed that: "My listeners are so used to me playing pranks that they're probably going to think this is just another one. It's not, I really am doing this."
He will join Frankie Bridge, Judy Murray, Alison Hammond, Thom Evans, Simon Webbe, Mark Wright, Sunetra Sarker, Steve Backshall and Jake Wood in this year’s battle for the Glitter Ball Trophy, with six more celebrities still to be confirmed.
Film review: Pride
Based on a true story, British film Pride explores what happened when a small group of politically-motivated lesbians and gay men set out to show support for striking miners by raising funds during the infamous miners' strike of 1984. The story begins at the London Gay Pride march in the summer of that year when Mark (Ben Schnetzer) starts rattling buckets to solicit funds for the striking coal workers. Others join him, and later that year at Gay's The Word bookshop in Bloomsbury, the group Lesbians and Gays Support the Miners (LGSM) is born.
