Boston Pride honors the memory of Xavier Jugelé, the police officer who died on April 20th, during the terrorist attack on the Champs-Elysées, in Paris, France. In addition to being a dedicated ‘gardien de la paix‘, Officer Jugelé was a member of FLAG!, the French association of LGBT police officers, and one of its most committed members on the force. Boston Pride sends its condolences to his partner and his surviving family.
