Homosexual soldiers are to be paid travelling expenses to attend Gay Pride parades, while troops are not allowed to claim for trips to the Queen's Garden Party.
Gay troops have been told they can submit claims for their car mileage or train tickets to marches in London on Saturday and in Brighton next month.
Heterosexual soldiers have criticised the move saying they are not allowed to claim money for trips to important functions, including the Queen's Garden Party.
It will also be the first time Army and RAF troops will be allowed to march in uniform, Royal Navy soldiers are already allowed.
