Celebrating Our History
If you search for ambulance service history you soon find that information is pretty thin on the ground. If you try and find information about LGBT people in the ambulance service you will find virtually nothing. After all, just over 50 years ago sexual acts between two men were illegal and so it is highly unlikely people’s stories were ever recorded.
With some help from the staff at the National Emergency Services Museum in Sheffield we decided to pay homage to LGBT people in the past by collecting a series of photographs of current National Ambulance LGBT Network members in historical uniforms. We have also collected some interesting ambulance service facts to go with each photograph.
