A small town near Texas’ border with Mexico just elected Bruno “Ralphy” Lozano, a gay veteran who once wore heels to a Veteran’s Day parade, as its next mayor, reports Raw Story.

San Antonio’s Out in SA reported that Lozano won against Republican incumbent Robert Garza with more than 60 percent of the the vote after successful campaign messaging about bringing tourism back to the border town swayed voters.

“I am not ashamed of who I am,” Lozano told the LGBT website IntoMore. “Stonewall happened because drag queens and a minority group stood up to animosity, and I had to go back in the closet [while in the Air Force] because of that same hatred.”
