Police were not allowed to attend gay pride parade

LGBT procession in New York

The organizers of the gay pride parade, taking place in New York, announced a ban on participation in the processions for police officers. This is reported by The Hill.

Police participants will not be allowed to attend such events until at least 2025 inclusive. Those officers who guard the parade are asked to stay at least one block away from it and intervene only when absolutely necessary.

The organizers explain that this decision was made in order to ensure a sense of security for all representatives of sexual minorities at the parade.

“NYC Pride is committed to creating safer spaces for LGBTQIA + communities and ethnic minorities at a time when violence against marginalized groups, especially ethnic minorities and transgender people, continues to grow,” the LGBT group said in a statement.

The New York City LGBTQIA Police Association outraged this move and emphasized that it was contrary to the ideas of tolerance and inclusiveness.

In 2018, the gay pride parade was first approved in Russia – it was supposed to take place in the village of Yablonevy, Ulyanovsk region, where the population was seven people. On the same day that it was reported, it became known that the authorities had withdrawn their permission.
