Mississippi’s First Openly Gay Mayoral Candidate Murdered

Marco McMillan had been both the CEO of a non-profit consulting group and a member of Ebony Magazine’s 30 up-and-coming African-Americans under 30. Now he’s dead, most likely the victim of a hate crime, because there was a chance he could’ve been the mayor of Clarksdale, and the first openly gay mayor in the history of the state of Mississippi.

Remember Adama’s speech from Battlestar Galactica about “what makes us think we deserve to survive as a species?” Yeah, that.
