NYC Fire Department Gets First Lesbian Battalion Chief

Capt. Michele Fitzsimmons has made history as the second woman and the first lesbian to become a battalion chief in the New York City Fire Department.

Fitzsimmons, a 19-year veteran of the department, was promoted Thursday in a ceremony at the city’s Fire Academy, the New York Daily News reports. The event followed social distancing rules, so Fitzsimmons wore a surgical mask, and no friends or family members were admitted. Her wife, DiAnna, stayed in their car.
