Wednesday Morning Man: Gavin Newsom!
California’s next governor is ac staunch LGBT ally who just happens to be handsome as a movie star.
He’s Gavin Newsom who sailed to victory last night. He has been the state’s lieutenant governor for the past eight years and before that was the mayor of San Francisco.
I’ll never forget the excitement Newsom brought to the LA Pride Parade in 2009 when he walked the entire parade route like a rock star. He was a leader in the fight for same-sex marriage going so far as to order San Francisco’s city clerk in 2004 to issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples. While the marriages ultimately did not stand up in court, they did lead to a CA Supreme Court ruling legalizing same-sex marriage.
Congratulations to the new governor!
