Last night, Audrey Gibson won the special election primary for Senate District 1 which covers Jacksonville. She will go against a write-in candidate on October 18.
Gibson has been a consistent supporter of LGBT equality. While in the state house, she supported repealing Florida's ban on LGBT adoption; voted in favor of a fully inclusive safe schools policy; and voted against a bill that would have prohibited state universities from offering domestic partnership benefits to employees.
Equality Florida awarded Audrey Gibson our "Voice for Equality" award at our 2010 Jacksonville Gala.
Congratulations to Audrey Gibson and her entire campaign staff for a hard-fought campaign.
