Police say they have been uninvited from this weekend’s Sydney Mardi Gras, following days of discussion about whether it would be appropriate for them to march.

The discussion comes in the wake of the alleged murders of gay couple Jesse Baird and Luke Davies by a serving police officer, and amid ongoing questions about the police response to December’s report into LGBTQ hate crimes.

“The NSW Police Force has been advised that the Board of the Sydney Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras has decided to withdraw the invitation to NSW Police to participate in this year’s event,” a police spokesperson said in a statement tonight.
