Trans ex-officer says the Army is 'one of the best LGBT employers in the UK'

A former army officer has branded the British Army "one of the best LGBT employers in the UK" following the kindness she was shown when she came out to her colleagues as gender fluid - after 25 years of military service. For decades Julie Miller, 61, who is married and has children, only showed herself as a transgender woman in secret - finally being inspired to reveal her true identity to the world in 2017, after seeing the courage of injured soldiers at a Wiltshire recovery centre run by the Help for Heroes charity. Recalling her visit, Dorset-based Julie - who retired from the army in 2018 and now volunteers for a transgender charity Chrysalis as an area coordinator who offers emotional support to the trans-community.
