What’s it like to be an openly gay police officer when almost all of your colleagues are straight? Badge of Pride, airing on THE PASSIONATE EYE, Wednesday, Feb. 3, at 10 p.m. ET/PT., looks at the lives of gay cops in Toronto—those who are “out”, those still “in the closet” and those who are somewhere in between the closet and the cruiser.
Twenty-five years ago, Toronto’s Gay Pride Parade was a protest march designed to speak out against police raids against gay bathhouses. In 2005, the city’s police chief joined in the parade, leaving many people to conclude that we’ve come a long way. But have we? Gemini award-winning director Min Sook Lee’s film asks that question by following four gay and lesbian Toronto officers for one year. Badge of Pride reveals how gay cops in Canada’s largest police force cope in a profession that has been perceived by some as anti-gay. Three of them speak candidly about the challenges they face—from being shunned and insulted by colleagues to being “outed” against their will. By the end of the film, one cop is on the verge of quitting, but another says he’s never had a negative experience. Ultimately, the film asks whether or not the force is with you when you are openly gay and if coming out as a gay cop has a price.
Badge of Pride is directed by Min Sook Lee and produced by Jennifer Holness of Hungry Eyes Film & Television in association with CBC News Network.
