First out gay Councillor elected in Birmingham


says “I was the only out gay councillor when elected (in 1997), I know there are other gay men, and always have been in , but only in the last two or three years are there ‘out’ gay men, and I am unaware of any lesbians or women I would pick out as being potentially lesbian even if they had chosen not to disclose to me. I think that lesbians are very under-represented in the local government structures”.
