police violence literally kicked off the struggle for lgbt liberation in the us. they used to raid gay bars and brutalize protestors and now they want to march with us? so that they can go back to work a day later and murder our black siblings and get away with it? no. they are more than welcome to participate, but LOSE the uniform. this murder institution should NOT be represented at pride. seriously, i don’t want ANYONE to feel unsafe during pride and police presence freaks many people out. why not a completely queer security squad? if these cops are all such good people they’d volunteer. i bet there’s many more badasses out there who would, too.
