A Georgia judge and former Republican representative came out as bisexual.
Mike Jacobs posted a photoTwitter earlierlier this month at the Stonewall Bar Association spring mixer, an event for LGBT law professionals, according to Gay Star News. While this did not confirm Jacobs’ sexuality, a statement to Project Q Atlanta made it more clear.

“DeKalb County has never had a trial judge who openly identifies as LGBTQ,” he said. “This is something I can change simply by sharing this part of who I am with the public.”
Jacobs said he and his wife Evan Jacobs wanted to set an example for their three children by being open about this part of their lives.
