“We remain the lesbian capital of New York City and the Northeast. In other words, we have a much larger lesbian population in Brooklyn. New York City is fortunate to have a large LBGT community, but in Brooklyn in particular, the lesbian community, there’s no question it’s the capital of the Northeast. They’ve made unbelievable contributions to the quality of life in our city and our borough.” – Marty Markowitz, Brooklyn Borough President, speaking yesterday on WNYC. Markowitz, one of the most colorful politicians in NYC, leaves office next month due to term limits.
