Tributes for Julie Frank
Tributes to Julie Frank who was first uniformed police officer to march in a pride event.
Former GMP officer Julie Frank, who died following a battle with cancer on Monday, has been hailed for making the force more inclusive and battling homophobia.
Tributes continue to be paid to THIS pioneering WPO who is heralded as one of the first uniformed officers to march at Manchester Pride.
Julie Frank, who served with GMP for 30 years,was respected for her work battling homophobia and predjudice within the force.
Retired from the police eight years ago, she helped set up the force’s Lesbian and Gay Staff Association and was one of the first ever officers to take part in London’s Pride parade as well as its Manchester equivalent at a time when society had a very different view on the matter.
Tributes have been paid by GMP’s top officer, her countless colleagues, aswell as the Lord Mayor of Manchester Carl Austin-Behan following her death from cancer on Monday.
Many have hailed her lasting impact on tackling prejudice, talking of her strength of character and sense of great fun too.
