Lesbian set to become Ohio’s first out state lawmaker

Wow, I almost missed this!

Nickie Antonio tonight won the Democratic primary in the District 13 Ohio State House race that drew no Republican opponents for the fall. With only token opposition in the general election this November, Antonio is poised to become the state’s first openly LGBT state legislator. [via]

Totally awesome. I hope she wins. This is an important door to open, and I can't wait to see what happens from here.
