NYC Pride Is Banning Police From Participating In Its Events To Create “Safer Spaces”

Quote:
Police will be banned from participating in New York City Pride celebrations as event organizers grapple with a year of reckoning over police violence and a push to center the most marginalized members of the LGBTQ community.

The ban applies to law enforcement and corrections officers until at least 2025. Organizers said they would also aim to limit the role of the NYPD in a security capacity.

“NYC Pride seeks to create safer spaces for the LGBTQIA+ and BIPOC communities at a time when violence against marginalized groups, specifically BIPOC and trans communities, has continued to escalate,” event organizers said in a statement Saturday. “NYC Pride is unwilling to contribute in any way to creating an atmosphere of fear or harm for members of the community. The steps being taken by the organization challenge law enforcement to acknowledge their harm and to correct course moving forward, in hopes of making an impactful change.”

Does this ban include any gays who happen to wear blue uniforms when on the job?

With no police around, who is going to arrest any gay bashers who might take notice of the fact that there are no police to stop them?

Funny thing is that they will call upon private security services...WHICH, of course, will be made up of former, retired police officers...
