This Queer Angel

By Elaine Chambers

A nurse's battle against the UK Government after she was sacked from the army for being a lesbian

Monday, 11 June 2018

Are there medals for ‘Patience in the face of Editing?’

How sick must you all be? Every update contains a grovelling apology for the ever-lengthening time it’s taking for TQA to be born...the latest delay is due to the complex nature of the concerns thrown up by the legal read through...BUT, this belt and braces, dotted and crossed I’s and T’s approach is essential if we (Unbound and yours truly) want to avoid finding ourselves in court! Having already experienced the tedious horrors of the 13-year battle against the UK Government, I most definitely do not want a repeat...

So, it’s been gone through with a fine tooth comb, more alterations and minor excisions, that I hope will render it fit to reveal itself, have been made...often reluctantly, as everything I’ve written is true, but privacy laws and the sensitive nature of the subject matter dictate... 

As long it doesn’t morph too far from what I’ve written, I sincerely hope you’ll be reading it soon, but meantime, you have my ongoing MAHOOSIVE gratitude for not giving up on me and my nutty little story!
