Fighting With Pride

Documentary series, telling the stories of the personnel who epitomise the ban on LGBT+ people serving in the British Armed Forces.

10x 10mins, and 1x 60mins, by John Dash Media, first aired August 2021

These are the stories of those arrested, interrogated, subjected to degrading medical examinations or court martial.

We will hear moving narratives from service personnel and commanders, who did extraordinary things, each a story of loyalty and courage. They include a holder of the Military Cross, a dismissed airman later Lord Mayor of Manchester, and a former First Sea Lord who prevented investigations.

A finale programme brings to life this difficult past, ahead of announcements about reparations later in 2021.
