Abstract

A new study of gays and lesbians in the Canadian military has found that after Canada’s 1992 decision to allow homosexuals to serve openly in its armed forces, no negative consequences occurred. The study was sponsored by the Center for the Study of Sexual Minorities in the Military at the University of California, Santa Barbara. Key findings include: lifting of restrictions on gay and lesbian service in the Canadian Forces has not led to any change in military performance.  After the ban was lifted, follow-up studies found no increase in disciplinary, performance, recruitment, sexual misconduct, or resignation problems.
