Which Two States Don’t Have Any Out Elected Officials? | News | The Advocate

The Victory Fund reports that only two states lack any openly LGBT elected officials — and the two states may surprise you.

While all the Southern states have at least one openly LGBT elected official, neither Alaska or South Dakota has any.

“That doesn’t mean these states aren’t served by LGBT elected officials, just that none have self-identified publicly either in speeches or in the media,” according to the Victory Fund’s Gay Politics blog. 

The last Southern state to lack an openly LGBT elected official was Mississippi, but that changed when Southhaven mayor Greg Davis came out this month.
