Diversity is at the heart of the Network. Every individual in the army is diverse and so is every family.

Sgt Smith-Weston FamilyAs an LGBT+ community we face different diversity when it comes to starting a family, running a family or having a family member that is LGBT+. From that we have created the diverse families role to help advise, guide and mentor anyone who feels their family has diverse LGBT+ needs.

Sgt Smudge Smith-Weston is a single father with one child living with him and three away, he is also openly gay. He has been married to both a woman and a man and has dealt with almost every aspect of running a family with a LGBT+ member.
