St. Petersburg gay community celebrates election of council member Steve Kornell
ST. PETERSBURG – The gay community will celebrate the election of City Council member Steve Kornell tonight at Georgie’s Alibi.
Kornell, who was recently elected to represent District 5, is the city’s first openly gay elected official.
“Steve’s understanding of what makes the city of St. Petersburg great, his strong community involvement transcended the issues of sexual orientation and led to his historic election,” reads the invitation.
The mixer, titled “Community Celebrates Steve Kornell,” runs from 5 to 9 p.m. at 3100 3rd Avenue North at the popular St. Petersburg gay bar.
