The Kansas City Pride Democratic Club, representing gay and lesbian members, has announced its endorsements in Kansas City's mayor and council races:
Mayor -- Alvin Brooks.
4th District At-large -- Deth Im and Beth Gottstein.
4th District in-district -- Ezekiel Amador and Jan Marcason.
5th District At-large -- Cindy Baker Circo.
6th District At-large -- Cathy Jolly.
The dual endorsements in the 4th District races "show how far Kansas City politicians have come in their support for the LGBT community," the club said in a statement.
One interesting note: Pride handled their endorsements a little differently than the other large club in the LGBT community, the Four Freedoms organization. While Four Freedoms' endorsements were tinged with controversy, with some of its voting board members involved in political campaigns, Pride's endorsements were based on votes from its large membership.
