A few cities across the country have employed gay police liaisons in an effort to curb homophobic aggression on the behalf of their police forces. Now, The Washington Gay and Lesbian Liaison is being cited as a model. Founded in 2000, the 15-member strong group works with other flat foots and community volunteers (aka snitches) to solve crimes among gay communities. We think that’s swell, but what we find most alluring is the group’s leader, Sgt. Brett Parson (pictured). According to a piece from 365 Gay, the “burly” Parson gave up his gig as a hockey ref to fight crime. Forget superheroes, we want more coppers like Parson. We’ll gladly snitch.
