Police in Lublin, Poland took action to protect participants in a pride march last Saturday from anti-LGBT protesters, who, according to a media report, tried to stop the march and attack the marchers with eggs. Such action should stand as an example of how Polish authorities need to defend free and assembly rights as anti-LGBT rhetoric reaches a fever pitch ahead of national elections. The police behavior in Lublin over the weekend illustrates a clear message as well: basic rights should triumph over bigotry — and the state is obligated to side with the rule of law.

Why Police Aren't Welcome at Pride
Queer groups are protesting mainstream festivals and organizing alternative events that recognize ongoing police mistreatment of LGBT people. Ashley is part of Reclaim Pride , a coalition that wants more than a year-late apology. The group wants police removed from Pride altogether. Opposition to law enforcement marching in Pride parades is not new, but has intensified this year as the festivals have adopted themes honoring the anniversary of Stonewall, the LGBT rebellion against police abuses that led to the first Pride march and cemented June as Pride month around the globe.
In Sacramento, tensions between that community and police almost led to a ban on uniformed officers from participating in the event. It's Pride Month, and celebrations are happening all over the country, a lot of them also marking the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall riots, when New York police raided a gay bar. The patrons resisted, and a movement was born. Now there's a debate over whether to allow police officers in uniform to participate in Pride events. Police Sergeant Michele Gigante was one of at least a dozen of them who marched in Sacramento's celebration yesterday.
