With the type of historic win Penserga had, it was only a matter of time before the Boynton Beach Mayor received our OUT 50 award.
Currently, there are three openly gay mayors in Florida. Penserga happens to represent the first out mayor of Boynton Beach, and the city’s first out LGBT Asian American mayor elected in Florida.
Penserga’s much-publicized win came on the heels of the passing of the “Don't Say Gay” law. Penserga teaches IB chemistry at Suncoast Community High School in Riviera Beach.
As a public servant, some of his priorities include but are not limited to enhancing public safety for all communities, promoting affordable/workforce housing, and promoting entrepreneurship. Penserga is slowly changing the way we look at our political officials and impacting the future LGBT leaders of tomorrow.
