UK Spy Agency MI5 Named as Gay-Friendly Employer

Britain’s domestic spy agency MI5 was named as one of the country’s most gay-friendly employers Wednesday.

MI5 was ranked 62 out of 100 for being one of the best employers for lesbian, gay and bisexual staff, according to a list compiled by the equality charity Stonewall.

Ernst and Young topped the list, which is based on a confidential survey of more than 7,500 lesbian, gay and bisexual employees.

"The Security Service has worked hard in recent years to promote equality and diversity across all areas of its work," said Jonathan Evans, MI5’s director general. "We are pleased to be recognized by Stonewall, but there is still more we can do." Full story here!
