LGBT police officers: 'We are faced with a terrible manifestation of discrimination'

LGBT police officers: 'We are faced with a terrible manifestation of discrimination'
Jay Brome never felt the support and safety at work, even when he was in a dangerous situation while on patrol.

“I often hear insults and various LGBT jokes from colleagues every day,” Brome said. The officer says that all this started in highway patrol academy, when everyone got to know that he was gay. One day, a guy even wanted to shoot him after lessons.

“The guys often chased and beat me. I couldn't do anything,” the cop recalls. Jay Brome tried to make a difference by submitting many internal complaints, but he did not get a positive result. Later, the man accused the California Highway Patrol of discrimination and filed a lawsuit.

“I want to draw the attention of the authorities to the dangerous situation at work. All gays and lesbians are subjected to ridicule and discrimination,” Brome said. According to USA TODAY, thousands of officers face such a problem every year. Most of them do not have support and protection, so they turn to the courts and file lawsuits.

“I know that I’m not one such officer. I just want to live and enjoy every minute knowing that no one threatens me. I want to be free,” Jay Brome said.
