Today’s Hero: NC Sen. Julia Boseman

Openly lesbian NC state Sen. Julia Boseman was the lone dissenting vote in a resolution honoring the life work of the greatest homophobe to disgrace the halls of Congress, U.S. Sen. Jesse Helms. The resolution passed the North Carolina House 98-0 and in the Senate 41-1. Boseman is NC’s the only openly gay or lesbian state legislator. A total of 26 lawmakers in both chambers abstained from voting. Thank you, Sen. Boseman!
