LGBT News: UK Police Officers Publicly Propose To Partners
It was an annual LGBT pride parade that led to not one, but two proposals. And yes, both couples are now happily engaged!Advertisement
As police officers walked the LGBT+ Pride in London over the weekend, one of them made his way to his partner who had been watching from the side of the road. His partner approached him and went down on his knee. In the midst of all the clapping and cheers, the police officer proposed to his boyfriend.
It didn’t take long before his partner said yes, and the crowd cheered wildly. If they had thought that would be the only proposal for the day, they were in for a surprise.
Later on, another police officer also decided to propose, this time to a fellow officer, his life partner. To everyone’s delight, the couple also got engaged in the middle of the parade, and the Metro Police couldn’t help but shout out congratulations to Sam and Martin for their engagement.
Days before the parade, the Metropolitan Police Service had announced that it was launching an LGBT network in time for this year’s pride parade. This is why as much as 80 Met officers and staff had been out in force, taking part in this year’s celebration as they walked along side the staff from London’s Fire Brigade and Ambulance Service.
The Met hopes that with its new LGBT Network, crimes and other issues affecting the LGBT community can be addressed more sensitively and effectively. The network is also ready to represent LGBT matters in the Met as well.
