Luke forms LGBT Advisory Council with input from Leadership Pittsburgh

We've learned that Mayor Luke Ravenstahl is working with Leadership Pittsburgh to form a permanent LGBT Advisory Council, comprised of 8-10 individuals.  The Mayor is currently working with more than 35 leaders in the LGBT community to solicit recommendations for the Council.  He and his staff will review the recommendations and determine whom will participate. 

Finally.  I've been blogging about this for months.  The participation of Leadership Pittsburgh may be a signal that this won't be a perfunctory nod to the local gay community.  With all of the new energy surrounding Prop 8, perhaps we can start to tackle some of the remaining sticky issues in the City.  Beginning with the fact that most of my contacts who work for the City and are gay do not believe their work environment is particularly gay supportive. 

Do you have any suggestions for the Council?
