Event organizers ban Police from NY City Pride events

Event organizers have banned Police  from NY City pride events until 2025.

“The sense of safety that law enforcement is meant to provide can instead be threatening, and at times dangerous, to those in our community who are most often targeted with excessive force and/or without reason,” the organizers of the march said in a statement.

“NYC Pride is unwilling to contribute in any way to creating an atmosphere of fear or harm for members of the community,” they added.
