A contingent of LGBT police officers and firefighters took part in the Atlanta Pride parade on Sunday, dishing out swag and receiving loud cheers along the route.

The City of Atlanta's LGBT first responders have become a staple of the parade over the years, showing off their first float in 2013 and marching behind Mayor Kasim Reed for the last two years. 

In 2015, newly-appointed Fire Chief Joel Baker marched with the LGBT emergency personnel. An Atlanta police LGBT liaison served as a parade grand marshal in 2009.
