Maura Healey is Elected USA’s First Openly Gay Attorney General

Democrat Maura Healey has won the race for Massachusetts attorney general, topping Republican John Miller to become the nation’s first openly gay candidate elected to the top law enforcement job.

Healey has spent seven years in the attorney general’s office and was the former chief of the civil rights division.

She said she had the experience to do the job and will hit the ground running.

Healey is best known in the LGBT community for her work as assistant attorney general on the Massachusetts challenge to the Defense of Marriage Act, a lawsuit complementary to one led by Gay & Lesbian Advocates & Defenders.

Like many other media organisations, KitschMix is operating in an incredibly challenging financial climate. More people are reading the KitschMix than ever, but our advertising revenues are falling fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. KitschMix is an independent website that takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce, but we do it because we believe women in the LGBTQ community need more positive visibility.

If everyone who reads our articles, who likes them, helps to support them, our future would be much more secure.
