Prime Minster Gordon Brown has made his viewpoint on gays in the military as he praised the openly gay troops at a reception in Number 10.

The PM and his wife Sarah Brown last night hosted a reception at Downing Street to celebrate LGBT History Month which takes place throughout February.

Talking about the openly LGBT soliders who serce in the Army, Navy and RAF, Pink Paper reported that the PM said “You are the pride of our country and we thank you very much. We know this debate continues in America today.

I would say to people who still favour ‘don’t ask, don’t tell’, look at our experience in Britain.”

Brown also spoke about the hate crime that has rifled the nation and spoke about the trainee PC James Parkes who was attacked in Liverpool’s gay quarter. He said, “We all went into shock and morning as a spate of homophobic and transphobic attacks happened and as James Parks was hospitalised our thoughts were with him.”

Pink Paper also reported that the PM promised the attendees and everyone else in the LGBT community that he " will not give up on the fight for justice until justice is achieved.”
