In a new It Gets Better video, LGBTQ members of the New York City Fire Department share their experiences.

Since 2010, the It Gets Better campaign, launched by Dan Savage and Terry Miller in response to the suicides of LGBT youth, provides support through video testimonials to say that yes, LGBTQ people can be happy.

Recently, it's the LGBT members of the New York City Fire Department who have gone behind the camera and tell us the highlights of their lives.

“As firefighters, paramedics and EMTs in the most diverse city in the world, FDNY members have the tremendous opportunity to inspire young people through their brave work every single day,” said Commissioner Daniel A . Nigro in the description of the video.

“Through this video, they deliver an important message to lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer and questioning youth around the world – it absolutely does get better.”

We also find in this video you can watch below, Reverend Ann Kansfield, the first openly lesbien reverend to integrate the fire department we talked about on the occasion of her appointment:
