The city of Wilton Manors on Tuesday night swore in the first all LGBTQ city commission in the history of the state of Florida.
Commissioner Justin Flippen was elected mayor. Outgoing mayor Gary Resnick and newcomer Paul Rolli won commission seats. Two other commissioners — Julie Carson and Tom Green — are in the middle of their current terms.
Scott Newton, the last straight member of the commission, lost his re-bid after finishing third in a four-candidate race to fill two spots.
Palm Springs, California is the only other city in the United States with an all LGBTQ commission.
