At this year’s Pride Parade on Aug. 14, Austin Police Department representatives will be proudly driving the department’s brand-new Pride car, a shiny white vehicle festooned with brightly colored rainbow art, NOH8 logos, the hashtag #APDOUTANDPROUD and the department’s Pride patch. APD is the first police department in the state that has adopted its own Pride patch. The car was designed to represent “all aspects of the LGBTQ+ community,” according to a news release, which adds that APD feels “privileged to serve Austin’s vibrant community and continue to make strides in being true public servants to all.” APD recruiters will drive the new Pride car year-round.
