Death of former Boston Mayor Kevin H. White, supporter of LGBT sport

Thanks to Boston Pride, we have learned of the death of former Mayor of Boston Kevin H. White. Mayor White was a progressive political force whose work to support diversity enabled women, African-Americans, and members of the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) community to be better represented and more involved in Boston’s political system.

Mayor White’s fervent support of the LGBT community is best exemplified by his signing a pioneering Proclamation declaring the week of August 28th to September 5th, 1982, “Gay Athletic Games Week” in the city of Boston (photo), in recognition of the first Gay Games held in San Francisco at the time.

We join Boston Pride in expressing our condolences.
