"I know there were people who didn't vote for me because I was gay ... but I think people looked at me to see who I was as a complete person and where I was on the issues and that's what made the difference."

--Charles Pugh, who became the first openly gay candidate to win a major election in Detroit when he gained the most votes in a primary for City Council
