Why paint the town red when you can paint the town Trevor?

DC Pride Month Mayor Adrian Fenty Mova

Approximately 150 people turned out for DC Mayor Adrian Fenty’s LGBT Pride Month celebration Wednesday night at Mova on P Street NW.

The meet-and-greet on the last night of Pride Month was to celebrate the accomplishments of the lesbian and gay community, including the passage of same sex marriage rights earlier this year in DC.

Mike DeBonis at The Washington Post has a good write up of the event, which was billed as a non-campaign event for Fenty. But, Congressman Jared Polis (D-Colorado) spoke at the event–and he endorsed Fenty for re-election. Polis is one of three openly gay members of Congress.

In his column, Debonis (he moved to the Post from the City Paper a few months ago) talks about Fenty’s tough re-election campaign against Council Chairman Vincent Gray. He gives a good overview of some of the recent criticism by some in the gay community. DeBonis’ column is a good read; check it out.

In addition, DeBonis has a story in Friday’s Post about Fenty, his campaign, his governing style–and why the polls show him in trouble in his re-election bid.
