Recently, a friend of mine who is in the process of transition came out at her job and had a good experience. She received support from her managers and coworkers, a situation that all of us want for ourselves, but something we don’t always get. Regardless, I am very happy for her and anyone else out there that has the same experience.
For 24 years I have been on the streets of New York City working as a photographer. It is more than just a job; it’s a career to say the least. A career that I am proud of, one that has given me 12 NY Emmy nominations and 3 wins. More than that, it is a career that has defined who I am even more than the 10 years I spent as a firefighter.
