The US Airforce have sparked an uproar after they tweeted an image showing a soldier saluting a LGBTQ+ flag to ‘Celebrate Pride Month

In the image a silhouetted individual, who is clearly uniformed service member, is seen saluting the rainbow, black, brown and trans colours as well as the Air Force seal.

Is it not illegal for a uniformed service member to salute anything but the American flag?

Summit News reports: The caption reads “June is #PrideMonth! The Department of the Air Force proudly recognizes and celebrates generations of LGBTQI+ service members and their contributions to our #AirForce & #SpaceForce.”

The Air Force Global Strike Command responded to the tweet, writing, “Our diversity is our competitive advantage.”

Many were not impressed:
