How do activists defend their opinions regarding uniformed police being celebrated in Pride parades? Twelve semi-structured in-depth interviews were conducted in Vancouver, Canada with six people who supported the celebration of uniformed police and six people unsupportive of uniformed police in Vancouver’s Pride parade. Findings show four ways people frame their stance on uniformed police in Vancouver’s Pride parade. Those who support a police presence justify their stance with two arguments: historical progress and the transnational versus local resonance of social movements. Activists who do not support the police invoke two different arguments memory of historical marginalization, and pinkwashing. These findings show that people who support the police in Pride parades focus on positive social change that the LGBTQ com-
munity has achieved, while those who are against focus on the specific ongoing oppression of members of the LGBTQ community by the police.
