The people of Lexington, Kentucky - the second largest city in the state - have elected their first openly gay mayor, Jim Gray!
Chuck Wolfe, the President and CEO of Victory Fund - which endorsed Gray - says:
“This is a tremendous victory for Lexington, for Kentucky’s LGBT community and for fairness. We are proud of Jim Gray and his fantastic campaign staff who fought hard for this win.”
This was his second time running for the position, and he beat out incumbent Mayor Jim Newberry for the spot.
Congratulations are certainly in order for Gray, and to the people of Lexington!
