Four San Diego Firefighters to sue over forced participation in LGBT Pride Parade

365Gay.com reports:

Four San Diego firefighters claim they were forced to take part in the city’s LGBT pride parade and were subjected to sexual taunts by crowds on the street.

The four have hired Michigan-based Thomas More Law Center, a conservative Christian law practice, to represent them. Thomas More Attorney Stephen Stirling has asked the California Department of Fair Employment and Housing for right-to-sue notices, a first step toward a lawsuit.

“You could not even look at the crowd without getting some kind of sexual gesture. If any crew member were to hang up pictures at the station of what we saw, we would be disciplined,” one of the firefighters is quoted as saying in a press release issued by the Thomas More Center.

“I was forced into a situation that would compromise what I hold true and what I believe in.”
