Brian Sims running for State Representative in Pennsylvania, primary on April 24

New, comments

Brian Sims, the former college football captain who came out publicly on Outsports in 2009, is running for State Representative in Pennsylvania's District 182. That district encompasses the city's "Gayborhood." If elected, he would be the first out LGBT legislator in Pennsylvania history. With the Democratic primary on April 24, he's knee-deep in his final push for his party's nomination.

You can read more about Brian at his campaign Web site and his Facebook page. We also have the story in which he came out publicly, and I've included a couple videos of him below.
