MJ Knefel // No Cops At Pride

Organizers of this year’s Pride events in New York City recently announced that uniformed police officers will be banned, sparking reactions from various media outlets. MJ Knefel rejects the New York Times’ stance that cops should be welcomed at Pride festivities citing law enforcements’ historically brutal treatment of people in the LGBTQIA community and the spirit of Pride as a protest.

MJ and John Knefel are hosts of the longrunning progressive politics podcast, Radio Dispatch.
