The Rainbow Times: “Northampton’s Mayoral debate for the LGBT community offered important insights”
David J. Narkewicz and Michael J. Bardsley squared off in a debate specifically for the LGBT community and its allies, amid the season’s first snowstorm on October 29th. The event, held at The State Room in The Center (35 State St., Northampton), was organized by Bet Power, Executive Director and Curator of the Sexual Minorities Archives, and Jean Sevarese, one of the co-founders of Out Books on Wheels. Around 40 members of the LGBTQ and allied community gathered to hear the two candidates talk about social justice and civil rights, especially as it pertains to the LGBTQ community, and to pose questions that might not be raised in a general debate.
