Well, a BIG, FURRY, WARM WELCOME to our amazing BluePride forum!
I believe I can speak for our group of LGBT men and women in the various areas of LEOs and CJs that we are soooo pleased you found us!
We DO have a lot of FUN here in BluePride with general joking around and horseplay. At the same time, there are many issues that will make you especially PROUD when we rally to support one of our own in need... and band together in times of pain... and REJOICE in each step of VICTORY when we are honored, recognized or included by the larger community, whether those comrades in "blue" or lay society.
Icepride, do jump in anytime. Check in often. DO check out the notices on the annual LEGAL International Annual Conference (this year being held in Las Vegas in September.) We would love to see you there!
OH... and we have a running "smile" with our BluePride "break room" where I bake fresh, hot cookies and we relax. Let me know what your fave type of cookie is and we'll feature it for your welcoming party!
Happy Paw Waves, Bear _________________________.

Hi ICEPRIDE. Welcome to blue pride. I'm originally from New York but now my prtner and I live in Florida. Carroll's the name, corrections my game !!! We have two retired Police officers, one from SD and one from ND that live near me in Sarasota. I spent some time in Rapid City some years ago. It's truly beautiful country and Mount Rushmore really takes your breath away. Still, I'll take the Florida sunshine over your cold and snow any day !!!! We're glad to have you with us on blue pride. Now don't be a stranger. Jump on in, the water's fine.
Welcome ICEPRIDE! Two ICE members in one week huh? I think we have a couple of other members buried deep within our membership but it appears that Blue Pride has officially entered the "ICE AGE".
I guess you new guys have a bit of time on your hands since your esteemed leader..... has had a hand in releasing thousands of criminals into our midst. I gotta be honest and up front about this....I'm no fan of her. But I like the members of ICE! In fact, one of my hobbies is to wear a T-shirt with the letters, "I C E" on it and go sit in a hospital emergency room! Then I see how long it takes for the ER to empty out!!! ;D
Hello IcePride! I'm another of the Florida contingency. I work for the Sheriff's Office here in Tampa.
Hope you get some enjoyment out of this site too. It can be cyclical with slow times, but get on a topic that everyone has an opinion on, and watch out! We may have differing opinions at times, but that is the beauty of it. You get to hear other points of view.
If you have some great photos of the scenery/land or anything else you are proud of, share them in the photo section. You will see I like to share travel photos.

ICEPRIDE I actually work with some CBSA guys from Winnipeg. Due to protocols not so much with RCMP. Although they always seem to wind up contacting me. You have probably have met some guys I work with. My experience is that some CBSA guys are harder to work with, as a gay man, than the police.
