Queer Quote: NV State Sen. Kelvin Atkinson's Coming Out Speech

Thanks to Rod 2.0 we can now watch the video of the emotional speech that Nevada State Senator Kelvin Atkinson made during the debate on repealing Nevada's ban on same-sex marriage when he came out as a Black gay man.

An excerpt from his speech is today's Queer Quote:
"I'm 44-years-old. I have a daughter. I'm Black. I'm Gay. I have, umm, dealt with a lot folks are talking about. I know this is the first time some of you have heard me say that I am a black gay male."
Again, congratulations to Senator Atkinson for coming out!
