Nevada Senator Kelvin Atkinson Comes Out!!

One Step Closer to Equality.

During an hourlong debate about gay marriage in the Nevada State Senate, Democratic Sen. Kelvin Atkinson made an abrupt announcement: "I'm black. I'm gay. I know this is the first time many of you have heard me say that I am a black, gay male." The state Senate was meeting over a measure that would repeal its ban on same-sex marriage. It eventually passed, and if it gets approved by the state Assembly and both houses, it will go to a public vote in 2016. Atkinson furthered his point: "If this hurts your marriage, then your marriage was in trouble in the first place."
