fdny welcomes first transgender firefighter

New York has been on SUCH a roll lately!

We're thrilled to announce that an NYC resident named Brooke has been welcomed by the FDNY as the first transgender firefighter in the city's history!

Here's what Brooke had to say about it in a written statement:

"I am appreciative of the support that the FDNY has given me during this time in my life. However, it is my expressed wish that the details of my personal and professional life remain private."

And here's what a fellow firefighter had to say about it:

"It’s a tremendously courageous decision. Hopefully everyone will be supportive."

We hope so too, and we're pleased to hear that all seems to be going well so far! Good luck, Brooke!

And GREAT JOB, FDNY! Keep it up!!!

    He isn't going to be welcomed by most of the FDNY, that's all there is to it.

    When are these people just going to leave us alone. We should exile them all to Greenland.

    It seems slightly against her wishes to post about this with the transgender part included, no? And @Gay Republican - go away.
