Eight members of the Gay Straight Alliance club came to the Campbell City Council meeting last night and led the Pledge of Allegiance.
"The Democratic National Convention has LGBT representatives from all 50 states for the first time," Campbell Mayor Mike Kotowski said. "Looks like we are growing up."
Campbell's own Vice Mayor Evan Low is currently in Charlotte, North Carolina at the DNC and the local LGBT community.
The Gay Straight Alliance was formed in 1998 in San Francisco Bay Area schools. According to the Westmont High School website, the club's goals are "To support LGBT students, and to fight against homophobia and transphobia on campus."
When it was first formed, there were 40 schools that had clubs on campus. Today, there are more than 880 nationwide.
