CFA’s lesbian, gay, bi-sexual, transgender and intersex (LGBTI) members are invited to march in uniform for the first time at the annual Gay and Lesbian Pride March on 1 February 2015 with their family, friends and volunteer supporters.

CFA members will join other emergency services to march down St Kilda’s Fitzroy Street as part of the 2015 Gay & Lesbian Midsumma festival.

CFA Pride Ambassador and gay volunteer firefighter Russell Wright describes the upcoming march as an historic event for the agency. "Participating in the Pride March shows how diverse CFA actually is, with so many people coming from all walks of life, as well as how far the organisation has come," said Russell.

CFA PRIDE aims to support and promote a safe and friendly social networking environment for LGBTI members and hopes to organise more social events in 2015.
