State representative from Birmingham attends Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender Pride…. – Posted by Mary Orndorff – Associated Press

State Rep. Patricia Todd, D-Birmingham, was among the state and local officials on hand at Monday’s White House event for the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender community.

The cocktail event in the East Room was to commemorate the 40th anniversary of the start of the gay rights movement and LGBT Pride Month.

Todd is the only openly gay member of the Alabama Legislature, a fact that landed her on the invite list, she said Tuesday morning after returning to Birmingham.
