To the Editor:

It is always great to see communities come together and be resolute on solving the ills of a society gone astray (“Lending their Voices on Stop and Frisk” and “Why Stop and Frisk is a Queer Issue,” by Paul Schindler, Jun. 6-19).

For too long New Yorkers have been allowing our very own police force to criminalize our youngsters.

The winds of time are changing, and the future of our youngsters cannot be played with or be wronged by law and order.

On June 17, we will STOP stop and frisk. The 1199 SEIU LGBTQ Caucus stands in support of this march for justice.

To the Editor:

Police harassment of gay men presumed to be having or about to have “public” sex flourished during the Giuliani years. It's time to stop minority profiling for good!

To the Editor:

This is also an important issue because the young men targeted by stop and frisk are primarily black. We have complained that the black churches have not supported us in our quest for marriage equality, but why should we expect them to help us if we do not stand up for them when they are being discriminated against?
