Welcome, New Mayors!

Three LGBT mayors were elected this week

Tuesday's election marked an enormous victory for LGBT candidates in Chicago, Kansas City and Madison, and the number of LGBT politicians only continues to grow as more people not only run, but support diverse candidates who offer our cities a wealth of new ideas and experiences. This is a very exciting time to live in and I hope we see this momentum continue until we see respresentation spread across the board. 

Until now, we've only had a handful of LGBT mayors elected in the top 100 cities of the country since 2009, but according to LGBTQ Victory Fund we could triple the number of officials in a single election cycle alone at this rate! It gives me hope, especially when so many other things we see in the news seem so hopeless in comparison.
