Kimberly Alvarenga Is Running For A Seat On The Board Of Supervisors To Represent The LGBTQ Community In San Francisco

Union leader Kimberly Alvarenga hopes to represent the LGBTQ community in San Francisco serving on the city Board of Supervisors after her candidacy was approved.

It's been 16 years that a lesbian has not served on the San Francisco Board of Supervisors and Alvarenga would like to end this by running for a seat. It's been also eight years no lesbian candidate has obtained a political position within the city.

Alvarenga, 47, is the political director of Service Employees International Union Local 1021.

"We used to have a bigger voice," Alvarenga told the Bay Area Reporter.

Despite the support of the Harvey Milk LGBT Democratic Club and the National Gay and Lesbian Victory Fund, it will not be easy to win as she has in front of her a serious candidate, Ahsha Safai.
