An article published by People Management on 26 July 2013 written by Tim Smedley reports on "How the MoD revolutionised its stance on LGBT employees".

The article says "Many colours were discussed and discarded when the Ministry of Defence LGBT network was planning for the Pride march in London in June. After a lengthy debate they plumped for purple. Rob Malpass vice-chair of the LGBT Employee Network Committee jokes that a "straight eye" may have made for a short meeting on that occasion. Such sartorial dilemmas would have seemed unlikely among MoD staff until recently. Around 50000 civil servants in the department work side-by-side with the Armed Forces personnel of the Army Navy and RAF. Until 2000 it was illegal to be gay and serving in the armed forces. And until the early 1990s gay people couldn’t work with top-secret material in the civil service. It is fair to say it was not the most people’s idea of a gay friendly employer."

The above-mentioned article tells us that Malpass who is a HR professional within the Defence Reform Unit says that the MoD has come a long way since he joined in 2003. He is reported to have said: "A lot has happened for LGBT equality in the UK generally between 2003 and today. Has the MoD had further to travel because of the ban on gays in the military? It’s difficult to tell. But I can say our [the network’s] whole purpose now is about ensuring that LGBT people can be out an authentic in the workplace."
