Kay Floyd

Kay Floyd made history in 2012 by being the first out lesbian to be elected to the Oklahoma House of Representatives. Her priorities are strengthening the state´s education system and improving conditions for Oklahoma´s women. Among the bills she has authored include ones that give suicide prevention assistance in schools and stop domestic violence. ″The most rewarding aspect of my work is making a difference in a state where we are ranked second in the nation as the toughest place to live if you´re a woman and second to last in the nation for the number of women in office,″ she says. ″From passing legislation to helping victims of domestic violence to working on suicide prevention in our schools, I am proud to lead the way in lifting up women and children.″ The former Administrative Law Judge for the state of Oklahoma also makes the most of her spare time as a member of three separate committees within the Oklahoma Bar Association, as well as volunteering on the Citizens Action Committee for the Oklahoma City Animal Shelter and sitting on the Board of Directors of Oklahoma´s Lyric Theater. -GH
