A Los Angeles law enforcement officer is filing a discrimination complaint against his employer who refused to allow him to march in a gay pride parade, celebrity website TMZ.com reported.

The officer, who has yet to be identified, says he was denied a request to march in uniform during the upcoming June 12 Christopher Street West Hollywood Gay & Lesbian Pride Parade and Festival.

After submitting a written request to participate in the parade, the cop says his bosses balked at the idea, and wrote in their refusal that doing so would bring “discredit” to his department.

Celebrity lawyer Gloria Allred is representing the officer. She is expected to hold a news conference with reporters on Tuesday.

Allred reportedly would not discuss the identity of the officer or the department where he works, but did disclose that he's gay.

Last month, Allred made quick work of a case involving a father who accused Atlanta Braves pitching coach Roger McDowell of hurling anti-gay slurs towards fans in San Francisco's ATT Park.
