Portland, OR, Gets A Gay Mayor

The first major United States city to elect a gay mayor swore him in New Years Day at 12:01am. Supreme Court Justice Virginia Linder administered the oath of office to Sam Adams, who said afterwards, "May 2009 be a very prosperous year for all Portlanders."

Have a look at Portland’s new mayor last year as he addressed a crowd angry about the passage of Proposition Eight in Oregon’s neighbor to the south.

I have a feeling we’ll be hearing from Sam Adams quite a bit in the future.
