Keith Durbin made history last night as Nashville voters cast their ballots and made him the state’s first openly gay elected official. Durbin moved from his native Paducah, Kentucky home eleven years years ago to set up a happy homo home with his boyfriend of twelve years, Gary Bynum.
Now that he’s been elected to the city’s council Durbin plans to keep his campaign promises:
…Be a strong voice for neighborhood interests, to emphasize top quality education for our children,[and] to encourage continued economic vitality…
Make us proud, Durbin.
