Out, gay Boston police officer and LGBT Boston Police Department Liaison Javier Pagan is on the cover of the current issue of Sports Illustrated.

The cover photograph captures Pagan and two fellow police officers racing into action to help a fallen marathon runner after the explosions at the Boston Marathon.

Pagan joined the Boston police force in 1995 and is a long-time member of the Gay Officer's Action League (GOAL), according to his Facebook page. The Greater Boston Business Council (GBBC), Boston's LGBT chamber of commerce, gave him an Award for Excellence for outstanding service in 2005.

The already iconic photo is making the rounds on Facebook and other social media platforms.
