The Royal Air Force has called in a gay pressure group to help solve its recruitment crisis. The Service will take advice from Stonewall on how to make itself more attractive to homosexual and bisexual men and women, and is aiming to spend tens of thousands of pounds on advertising in the “pink” media.
As part of the initiative, the RAF will pay Stonewall an undisclosed sum to join its “Diversity Champions” programme, under which commanders have to demonstrate the Service’s commitment to implementing a range of policies to promote “lesbian, gay and bisexual (LGB) equality in the workplace”.
That news ought to really stoke the RAF’s morale.
