The NYPD police officer above opened up with his support displaying a tee-shirt in support of his fellow officers who are in the LGBTQI community. He wrote a post as well:

For my cousin.
For all of the cops, I have worked with over the years, including one of the best partners I've ever shared a sector car.
For my classmate in High School whose parents made him sleep in a tent in his yard.
For the man who cried on my shoulder about losing his partner on 9/11.

For anyone who's had to hide who they are.
I've got your back.
Love is Love."
