Gay Philippine Cops told to Keep ‘it’ in the closet while in Uniform
Philippine National Police officials’ have issued orders to keep uniform lines free from lace, lipstick, and, leather at least while on duty to avoid issues and keep the ‘uniforms’ uniform’ in media reports met by a little bit of laughter here in the capitol where most TV and Newspaper news desks are actually gay dominated – there is little outcry or complaints about ‘discrimination’ or a double standard you might expect in other countries. In the last few years the ‘domination’ as some see it in media, print, and even in speech -is evident across all walks of Philippine life.
B ut the macho National Police forces – seem to think with a few memo’s they can make those who follow that sexual preference to at least while in Uniform ‘keep it in their closet’ as it were. Problems began after some male gay policemen were becoming a little too colorful for the commanders with lipstick, high heel boots and lace while walking the beat. While government policy and law does not require officers to follow any specific pasterns of sexual conduct – in fact – it is not un-common for many police officers to have multiple families to support – the uniform – says the memo’s must be just that – uniform.
It will be interesting to watch and see what reactions will be – I expect the most outcry will come from tv networks – a bastion of gay rights at both ABS-CBN and GMA7 the two main networks are run by openly bi-sexual, lesbian, and, gay executives.
