After compromise, San Francisco mayor and police will march in city's Pride parade

Mayor London Breed had previously said she would boycott the event due to a ban on uniformed police officers marching in the parade.

San Francisco Mayor London Breed and members of the city's police department will march at this year’s San Francisco Pride Parade following an agreement, the mayor said Thursday.

“I almost want to cry because I’m so happy," Breed said.
