In this year’s mayoral race, it is easy to endorse the most pro-LGBT equality ally that this community has ever known, Jim Kenney. Since arriving on the political stage when running for Philadelphia City Council in 1991, Jim Kenney was out front with his support for our equality. He was only one of four on City Council who initially sponsored domestic partnership legislation, when fellow councilman Michael Nutter refused to. Then, he introduced the nation’s strongest LGBT rights law, and this week took another step forward by signing legislation for the trans community. We strongly and proudly endorse Jim Kenney.
