Grassroot Animal and LGBT Activists Fight New York City Council Speaker Christine Quinn’s Mayoral Bid

By , February 10th, 2013 | Election, Government, New York | 2 Comments

A recent Quinnipiac University poll placed New York City Council Speaker Christine Quinn leading the pack of her opponents in the 2013 New York City Mayoral Democrat primary. If Quinn won the general election in November, she would be the first female as well as open LGBT NYC mayor. While some are ecstatic at that prospect, a growing grassroots group of activists find the thought of a Quinn mayorship chilling.

Donny Moss believes so strongly that Quinn betrayed her housing and LGBT activist roots that he leads his eclectic band of animal, housing, LGBT and other assorted activists three times a week on assorted voter outreach and education events. On February 6, 2013, Moss led a group of protestors to a cobblestone East Village street to demonstrate in front of a $250-a-ticket Quinn fundraiser regardless of it falling on his birthday.
