State Sen. Will Brownsberger posted the following piece on his website. Brownsberger represents the Suffolk & Middlesex District, which includes Watertown. For me, the Pride parades and festivals are special this year because I am coming out as bisexual. I’ve been married to my wife for almost thirty-eight years.  I love, cherish, and enjoy her and I’m not about to change my lifestyle. I am moved to speak openly about myself for all the reasons that Pride month matters.
