This Week in Proud: Ottawa Mayor Jim Watson Comes Out Publicly

In Saturday’s Ottawa Citizen Mayor Jim Watson (@jimwatsonottawa) penned his own coming out, titled, “After 40 years, I'm opening the closet door.” In his beautifully written words, the honourable Mayor reflected on his life in the closet and why he made the decision that now was the moment to live authentically and openly. He ended his piece with some very powerful words that we hope will resonate with many. Mr. Mayor, we salute you and welcome you with open arms to the club!
