The dearth of openly LGBT leaders in Indiana is notorious. While there've been a couple of out city councilors around the state, there are no out officials of a higher rank. Now, Ft. Wayne Indiana has appointed a new fire chief. Not only is it the city's first female chief, Amy Biggs is also openly lesbian.
Congratulations to Biggs. She's opening doors in my home state and we need all the help we can get.
