Join Fighting With Pride at RUSI on 11 April

Would you like to join us for a panel discussion hosted by the Royal United Services Institute? There is still time to register.

Join Fighting With Pride at RUSI (Royal United Services Institute) in London on 11 April from 1300 to 1400 for a panel discussion regarding financial compensation for LGBT+ Veterans affected by The Ban recommended in Lord Etherton’s report.

The LGBT Veterans Independent Review, completed by Lord Etherton in July 2023, recommended to the government that a scheme be set up to compensate military personnel who were affected. This review shone a light on the unjust and shameful legacy regarding LGBT personnel in the Armed Forces.

Drawing on lessons learned from the success of Canada’s LGBT Purge Final Settlement Agreement, the panellists will consider how the UK government might deliver swift and fair compensation to veterans who were subject to this discriminatory policy.
• Catherine Dixon, Chair, Stonewall
• Michelle Douglas, Executive Director, LGBT Purge Fund, Canada
• Craig Jones MBE, Chair, Fighting With Pride

Ed Hall, Author, Entrepreneur and Political Activist, will chair the discussion.
