Summary In February 2015, the Village Voice heralded the arrival of "New York's Bravest" - Brooke Guinan, the first openly transgender firefighter in New York City. As a third-generation firefighter, Brooke has a passion for heroism that runs in her blood. Her father George is a respected lieutenant and 9/11 survivor with a 35-year legacy in the FDNY. People always asked Brooke if she would follow in her father's footsteps. But when Brooke transitions from male to female in her father's workplace, it poses a challenge not only to a "macho" profession, but also to the customs of the people she cares about the most: her traditional family.
