Kate Brown: Another Bisexual Pioneer
Kate Brown has made history by becoming the first out bi person elected Governor in the USA. She also pioneers that ground for the LGBT community as a whole, as no gay, lesbian or trans person has yet been elected to the role.
Kate had already served in the role for a year having replaced Oregon Governor John Kitzhaber following his resignation, so this is the first time she has been elected to the role. The term of office is just two years, so she will be back up for election in late 2018.
Her first twelve months in office included raising local minimum wage rates, and putting Oregon on the path to a cleaner and more sustainable energy supply through phasing out coal power generation.
