You probably agree: Evan Low was one of the true highlights of Angry Asian Man’s 30 under 30 list this year.
He is, after all, only 26. He’s also adorably handsome, with the kind of ready smile that somehow seems to denote a firm handshake and kind demeanor. And in 2006, months before the little bugger had even been elected to City Council in the city of Campbell, SF Mayor Newsom had officially declared June 5 “Evan Low Day” for San Fransiscans. The guy has his own day. Seriously.
As a city council member, Low quickly racked up distinctions as the first openly gay, Chinese American and youngest person in the Campbell City Council. He was also noted as the State of California’s youngest, openly gay official.
So get this: on Tuesday, Low was promoted from vice-mayor to a one-year term as Mayor of Campbell, which now makes him the youngest gay, and one of the youngest Asian American mayors in the whole freakin’ country. Hot diggity, this country needs more Gayors!
We can barely contain our excitement about a young, hot, gaysian rocking such a prestigious city office–but we will because we’re also reallyreallyreallyreally jealous that he has achieved so frickin’ much with nary a wrinkle around his happy eyes.
Congratulasians, Evan Low! We’ll celebrate you any ol’ day of the year!
Thanks, Colin and @eldiadia!
