Cops Propose At London Pride

27 June 2016

Over in the UK two policemen proposed to their respective partners during London Pride over the weekend, stopping the parade to publicly pop the question from their partners.

Two Police Officers, both marching in the parade, got engaged while another uniformed officer proposed to his partner who was standing in the crowd.

London Metropolitan Police’s LGBTI network tweeted photos of the happy couples and have been receiving reply tweets from trolls who are calling the engagement’s “sick” and “evil”.

The response from the MET Police LGBTI network was on point: “Sad to see grossly offensive homophobic trolling about our #marriageproposal but don’t worry we’re the police so we’ll be taking action.”

The London Pride Parade had a large Police presence following the mass shooting at a gay nightclub in Orlando which killed 49 people and injured 53 more.
