Stonewall rebellion veteran & co-founder of the first Gay Pride Parade, and a police Lieutenant openly protests local pride event in Burlington, Vermont.

I followed Fred on Twitter and was sad when he was banned (he's active on Facebook). Looks like he was wearing a "Women (noun): adult human female" t-shirt and had a "Gay... NOT Queer" sign.

On Fred's reason for becoming a police officer:

"I wanted to see if I could make a difference, and having seen the situation at Stonewall and how the NYPD handled that, I thought I could do it differently. Stonewall wasn't the only riot I saw. I'd been caught up in riots in the Village before and watched what the police did.”
