Fighting with Pride
Fighting With Pride (FWP) is a new military charity, created on the 20th anniversary of the complete lifting of the ban on LGBT+ service – the ‘gay ban’.
They are there to support LGBT+ Veterans, serving personnel and their families, particularly those who were affected by the ‘gay ban’, ultimately lifted on 12th January 2000. Before then, thousands of LGBT+ service personnel were removed or forced from service and abandoned, after serving with pride. In the years ahead it is their aim to restore the military covenant and bring this community back into the military family.
They are working with Veteran supporting organisations to build capacity for LGBT+ Veteran support, to recognise their service and help resolve the challenges they face in their lives beyond military service.
FWP is a ‘lived experience’ LGBT+ charity, supporting those seeking help and a resource for those who seek to help them.
