This week five representatives from Mayors Against LGBT Discrimination, a coalition of nearly 250 mayors from nearly every state in the country, participated in a special virtual event hosted by Tumblr. The event, an “IssueTime” virtual roundtable, saw mayors answering questions about LGBT equality and the push for LGBT non-discrimination protections.
Thank you to the following five mayors who participated. The mayors hail from states with and without LGBT non-discrimination protections, representing small towns and big cities and a wide range of backgrounds:
