In 2009 Low’s city council peers elected him to a one-year term as mayor, making him one of the youngest openly gay and youngest Asian-American mayors in America. Now in his second term on the council, Low is focused on his community’s future. Gay Politics spoke to him about his work on energy and sustainability issues.
