This Queer Little Planet: British Prime Minister Honors Gay Service Members

British Prime Minister Gordon Brown played host to gay and lesbian military personnel at 10 Downing St. last night at a reception marking the tenth anniversary of the repeal of the prohibition of gays and lesbians serving in the British armed forces.

According to Pink News, Brown told the audience that the British people owe gay and lesbian soldiers a "debt of gratitude we can never fully repay". He added, "I promise you that no one need walk the road to equality alone again."
