Ken Britt, a 2010 Fenuxe 50 honoree who has been a pillar of gay Atlanta for decades, announced this morning that he will be seeking the state House of Representatives seat for District 56, which runs from Ansley Park, through Midtown and to the Capitol View neighborhood just south of downtown. The seat is currently held by the lovely LGBT ally Kathy Ashe, who has represented the district and battled on behalf of gay rights since the early 1990s. Ashe has decided not to run for re-election.
