In particular, the future of the LGBT movement and the world of politics will be well represented when two members of Generation Equality soon take office.
In Massachusetts, Alex Morse defeated the incumbent candidate to become the mayor of Holyoke. The 22 year-old Morse is openly gay, a recent graduate of Brown University and a 2009 recipient of a Human Rights Campaign Foundation’s Generation Equality scholarship.

In Pennsylvania, John Campbell had won the primary and was unopposed in the general meaning he will become Treasurer for the City of Harrisburg. The 23 year-old Campbell is openly gay and a student at Lebanon Valley College where he is pursuing a dual degree in business administration and accounting.
Both Morse and Campbell are graduates of the Gay & Lesbian Victory Fund’s Campaign and Candidate training.
