Xavier Jugelé, the police officer who was gunned down yesterday by an Islamic terrorist on the Champs-Élysées in Paris, France, was a gay activist as reported by The New York Times:
"He was a simple man who loved his job, and he was really committed to the L.G.B.T. cause," said Mikaël Bucheron, president of Flag, a French association for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender police officers. "He joined the association a few years ago, and he protested with us when there was the homosexual propaganda ban at the Sochi Olympic Games," Mr. Bucheron said.
Mr. Jugelé is survived by his partner with whom he had entered into a civil union.
