California Corrections Officer Marched In Uniform At Gay Pride Parade In West Hollywood

Andrew Johnson, a gay California Corrections officer who made headlines last week when he complained his department would not allow him to attend the gay parade marched proud in his uniform at the 41st annual L.A. Pride Parade In West Hollywood.

Johnson won the right to march in his uniform after filing a charge of sexual orientation discrimination against the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation through his attorney, Gloria Allred.
