A straight New York City cop has shared an LGBTI Pride message on Facebook that is so powerful and on point that it has gone viral.
He identifies himself only as ‘Huge Fat Loser’ and posts a photo of himself wearing a T-shirt that reads: ‘I may be straight but I don’t hate.’
He then shares a list of reasons why he worked last weekend’s Pride event.
It’s a thorough and thoughtful list that any LGBTI person can identify with.
He writes: I’ll be out there working at Pridefest today wearing this shirt under my uniform for a lot of reasons.
For my step brother.
For my priest.
For my aunts who died before they could be legally married.
For my cousin.
For all of the cops I have worked with over the years, including one of the best partner’s I’ve ever shared a sector car with.
For my classmate in High School who’s parents made him sleep in a tent in his yard.
For the man who cried on my shoulder about losing his partner on 9/11.
For every call I went to where someone got kicked out of their house or who’s family just didn’t understand.
For anyone who’s had to hide who they are.
I’ve got your back.
Love is Love.
