    how about in other cities?

    my bf is a new orleans EMT, recently got his RN. i was invited to his "post mardi gras blow out party" at his haus this past weekend. MG is rough on these guys, what with the increased crowds in town and related injuries and stupidities. these guys often work 10 days in a row with no days off, and little time off between LONG shifts. so a stress release party after MG is over is enjoyed by all!

    i was amazed and gratified at how many of his coworkers are gay or gay-friendly. judging by the turn out, most EMT's in this city are gay, 25 to 40, in shape and damn cute.

    is this true just in new orleans or also in other big cities?

    Be glad you live in a gay friendly city with me. This also will apply to the NOPD and NOFD as well. All GREAT people and thanks for a job well done this year!!!!

    So many acronyms!
    I'd post a picture, but it can't adequately express the abundance of acronyms.

    Go work for the government!

    I had the same experience in Colorado Springs. Never thought I'd be great full to pass out early in the morning before work.
