California cop sues force that forbade him to march in gay pride parade
TMZ has learned a gay cop will file a complaint against his department, after he was denied the right to march in uniform Sunday in the West Hollywood Gay Pride Parade because it would bring "discredit" to his department.
Gloria Allred is repping the California officer, who made a written request to march in uniform with other gay law enforcement officers and citizens. Allred says the Department responded IN WRITING that the march would be a "discredit" to the cop shop. Yes, in writing -- stuuuuupid.
Allred will hold a news conference Tuesday at 11 AM PDT in her L.A. office and the cop will appear.
Here in D.C., of course, gay and gay-friendly police will be well represented in our gay pride march on Saturday even if a civilian has been put in charge of MPD's special liaison units.
