It's true that society as a whole has become more accepting of gay and lesbian people, but homophobia continues to be pervasive in much of the public safety arena. Most states still do not have any employment protection against harassment and discrimination based on sexual orientation. Imagine being fired from the job you love because of who you are.

About the Author:

Greg Miraglia is a veteran member of law enforcement with nearly three decades of experience serving three different police departments while rising to the rank of deputy chief. He has been teaching and managing police academies for 25 years and is currently the Dean responsible for the Criminal Justice Training Center at Napa Valley College in California. Mr. Miraglia is the lead academy instructor in the areas of cultural diversity, hate crimes investigations, and human relations.

Mr. Miraglia is a member of the Board of Directors for the Matthew Shepard Foundation and serves as the National Program Coordinator for Stop the Hate. Mr. Miraglia is also a host on Outbeat Radio, an LGBT radio program on FM radio station KRCB in Santa Rosa, California.

In his first book, ''Coming Out From Behind The Badge,'' Mr. Miraglia told his own coming out story after working nearly 25 years in law enforcement. Since the book was released, he has created a website to support other LGBT law enforcement personnel who are in the process of coming out. He also created the national ''Out To Protect'' Scholarship Program to support new LGBT law enforcement students.

"The best law enforcement work is done by people for people. We are a profession of people and to that end we share many common human attributes including our sexuality. The variety of sexual orientation found in men and women transcends all races, ethnicities, nationalities, religions, and countries. It also transcends every law enforcement agency serving and protecting every community. It is not a choice, but rather a part of how we were created. Although it can be masked, it cannot ever be changed. It is a part of every human being who carries a badge.'' - Greg Miraglia, M.A. Ed.
