Organizations

There are many excellent law enforcement, fire, and EMS associations for gay, lesbian,  bi-sexual, and transgender personnel.  One of the best ways of finding support locally is to explore an association near you.  Many of these associations have chapters in other states, but may not have a website.  Check out an association listed hear closest to you.

Blue Pride – On The Web And On The Air

Blue Pride Radio is an Internet radio show that used to air periodically. The show’s hosts, Carroll Hunter and George Farrugia presented a wide variety of topics related to the LGBT law enforcement profession. The website supporting Blue Pride Radio is www.bluepride.org. This site is currently active and offers space to ask questions, network with people from around the country, and to stay informed about upcoming events like the annual conference.
