Although homosexuality was decriminalised in the UK decades earlier, it remained illegal to be gay in the UK Armed Forces until 2000.
Forced Out (w/t) tells the story of the men and women who were dishonourably discharged from the Army, Navy and RAF because of their sexuality. Thousands faced intrusive interrogations by military police and many were imprisoned, had medals removed, and lost their service pensions.
Released to coincide with the findings of an independent government review, this film charts the historic battle for the ban to be overturned.
Forced Out (w/t) is produced by Dragonfly Film & TV (part of Banijay UK) in association with Sky Studios. Tom Pullen and Richard Bond are the Executive Producers, Luke Korzun Martin is the Producer Director and Sophie Perrins is the Producer.
