Britain’s domestic spy agency, M15, is specifically recruiting gay and lesbian citizens throughout the country. M15 is working closely with the LGBT rights group known as Stonewall in an attempt to hire gays and lesbians to aide the country in keeping close tabs on potential threats to their homeland.
The ban on gays in the British military is long gone. So long gone, in fact, that today gay members of the military are actually encouraged to be “out”.
London-based Financial Times says this recent decision is part of a broader cultural shift by the service.
Stonewall has also been called upon by the British military to help find new gay members for M16 – the country’s foreign intelligence service.
