  • The honest and coming of age life of a soldier

    An autobiography about being gay in the army that is actually about a young man who is on a journey of personal development. We learn about his family and what it means to be a member of a family dealing with an alcoholic absentee father and being raised by a step father and mother who accept you. The army introduces stability and foundation. The honesty about life in the army is refreshing.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • Out for change

    "The significance of her card changed my life. I was prouder at that moment than I have ever been and I thought, if an 85-year-old lady can change her mind on sexuality, there’s no excuse for the rest of the world." There's no denying the changes that have occurred in the military in the recent past and acknowledgement that there's still a long way to go. James has given us an insight into those changes and emphasised the need to be able to live authenticity. As a Canadian I can't help but draw comparisons and I'm amazed that it took the British military establishment so long. There's an eight year time gap between when Canadian Armed Forces allowed openly LGBTQ individuals to serve and when British forces caught up in 2000. The first same-sex military wedding in Canada occurred in 2005, some six years before his Civil Union in 2011. Military culture has always been resistant to change and it will still be many years before these changes will normal but thanks to a brave few things are getting better.

    Thanks for your feedback!
