Bill De Blasio is the new Mayor of New York City. His wife is Chirline McCroy. They have been married since 1994 and have two children, shown above. She is an interesting woman on her own, an author and poet.
In the 1970s she came out as a gay black woman and a feminist. I remember the 1970s as an interesting time; traditional values were changing. People seen as "different" were speaking out. This first family in New York is, in a way, a result of those times. I find them very interesting. It will be interesting to see how his influence on New York City will change from Michael Bloomberg's.
