Check his statement just released via social media:
"As of yesterday afternoon I submitted my letter of resignation and stepped down as the Chairman of the Kansas City Diversity Coalition. I will never forget this year serving the amazing people of this city in that capacity. This has been one of the most difficult and trying decisions I've ever had to make, but I have to look onward and upward. I have faith that the leadership here in the LGBTQIA community will come together to give this city what it deserves, unity. But they can't do it alone people. The only way we are going to see the proactive changes we want to se in KC, is if we stand up and help make it happen. Thank you to the what seems like hundreds of supporters who call, email, and text to let me know that they have my back and support me in whatever role I may be taking on. I wouldn't be where I am today if it weren't for you... Thank you all from the bottom of my heart! Here's to the future!"
