Don’t Miss ‘Breaking Through’ Documentary

Don’t Miss ‘Breaking Through’ Documentary

In 2001, Karla Drenner became a member of the Georgia state House of Representatives. I looked her up on Wikipedia and one descriptor states, “A lesbian, Drenner was the first openly gay member of the Georgia State Assembly.” Today she is one of four LGBT members, alongside Reps.
