Openly Gay Oklahoma Mayor Resigns Over Threats to His Safety

In a sign of how emboldened right wingers have gotten, the first openly gay mayor of a town in Oklahoma had to resign over threats to his safety. The Village Mayor Adam Graham took office in May and made it known that since taking the job he’s been followed home, accosted while walking his dog, and had his tires slashed. Graham posted his full resignation letter to Twitter, along with a blurb that read, “For almost five years, I've proudly served The Village as Councilmember and Mayor. It's been an honor to serve and it's been my great privilege to break boundaries. I no longer feel safe to serve in my capacity here. It's with a heavy-heart that I tender my resignation.” It seemed like many even on the far right in America were heading in the direction of being more tolerant toward LGBT people. Now, with the extremist Supreme Court rolling back basic rights and the Trumpian movement getting desperate, it appears many parts of the country are ready to reclaim the bigoted positions they openly expressed decades ago.
