LONDON - Britain's navy, which until five years ago banned gays from its workforce, said Monday it is joining a campaign to ensure homosexual employees are fairly treated.

The military also announced gay servicemen and women will be able to live in married quarters with their partners starting later this year.

The Royal Navy said it was entering a program organized by gay rights group Stonewall which advises employers on dealing with gay, lesbian and bisexual staff.

Britain's armed forces lifted thier gay ban in 2000. The Ministry of Defense has stated that sexuality was a private matter. This seems to be much better than the political compromise "Don't ask, don't tell" that the U.S. armed forces practice. Either go all in or all out not this "go ahead and lie to us" policy.
