Article on Tom Ryan

Bay Windows has a great article on the only out gay man in the NY Fire Department -- Tom Ryan.

Earlier, in an interview, Ryan, who turns 43 in early November, said that in the last year he found out that 25 closeted firefighters died in the World Trade Center. When Bay Windows spoke to him a week after the terrorist attack, he reported that to his knowledge none had-at least ones that were open about their sexuality. "There also were gay firefighters in the buildings who survived and still are afraid to come out," he said. "I find that incredible. How could you fear anything after going through that?"
