The race to see who will be the Atlanta City Councils next District 6 representative is a gay vs. gay contest once again.
On Wednesday morning, gay business owner and community volunteer Alex Wan met with Southern Voice to announce his bid for the seat, which is currently held by Anne Fauver, the Atlanta City Councils only openly gay member.
I think an openly gay person or Asian-American person being elected to City Council sends a huge signal about how open the city is, Wan said. If there is representation on the governing council of the city, I think that alone sends a huge message about openness and diversity.
This will be Wans second bid for elected office. In 2004, he ran for the District 57 seat in the Georgia House held by gay-friendly incumbent Pat Gardner. Wan, who lost to Gardner in the Democratic primary, would have been the first openly gay man and first Asian American in the state legislature.
