Stories of gay and lesbian firefighters and law enforcers in NYC.

New York City's annual gay pride parade takes place this Sunday. Openly gay and lesbian New York City police officers and firefighters will be among those marching. On this week's Cityscape, we'll delve into the issues gay and lesbian law enforcers and firefighters can face on the job.

Our guests are Mike Vissichelli, the president of FireFLAG, an advocacy group for gay and lesbian firefighters and rescue workers, and Greg Miraglia, an openly gay police officer and author of Coming out From Behind the Badge.
