But in 1977 I became a city supervisor.
I served for 11 months in office being in charge of passing regulations on gay rights.
On 1978 in Mid-November it was a very tragic day for both me and the mayor George Moscone we were assassinated by Dan White.
I am a proud gay activist.
Not many people think that it is right to be gay and run for a political position, but I believed in my supporters, and myself.
A lot of people have disguised themselves for society to appreciate them, but not me.
I came out and now I am one of the most famous LGBT officials in the United States.
I did not have to use violence to make any of this happen.
I showed my leadership non violently and eventually got support from many people.
Using my voice,
Using my power
was all I needed to create peace.
To show the world that I am not afraid.
Proving that women are all equal.
And we can do whatever men do.
Motivation is all it takes.
We are not going to start a new segregation on women’s equal rights.
Segregation is something we will not go towards.
Everyone including women will have the chance to prove that we are equal.
We are going to do it the non-violent way.
No fights, nor will there be deaths.
We are going to protest, and get what we want the right way.
