Wednesday On The DNC Arena Floor

NOTE 1: West Virginia LGBT delegate Jerry Brookover is a daily JMG reader.

Tom Ammiano was the first out public school teacher in California when the infamous Briggs Initiative sought to ban all homosexuals from being teachers. Ammiano founded No On Six (Briggs) with Harvey Milk and the initiative was defeated in 1978. After several terms on the San Francisco Board of Supervisors, Ammianno ran unsuccessfully for San Francisco mayor in 1999 (I voted for him!) and he's been a state Assembly member since 2008.
