Britain’s MI6 apologises for LGBT+ discrimination

(Reuters) – The chief of Britain’s MI6 foreign intelligence service publicly apologised, on Friday, for historic discrimination against LGBT+ people in the spy agencies before 1991. Britain decriminalised homosexual acts between men in 1967, but its spy agencies refused to hire LGBT officers until 1991, because they believed they would be susceptible to blackmail.
