Summary

Flippen also pushed to have Wilton Manors become the first city to permanently raise an LGBTQ pride flag in 2015.Tributes poured in from across Florida — and beyond.“Justin had a passion for public service and was helping lead a new generation of LGBT leaders in the greater Fort Lauderdale community,” tweeted Dean Trantalis, the openly gay mayor of neighboring Fort Lauderdale. “Our communities owe so much to public servants like Justin.”Former Houston Mayor Annise Parker, now the president and CEO of the Victory Fund, which endorses LGBTQ candidates for office and backed Flippen’s run for mayor, said that she was texting him just last week about his re-election, “and he was upbeat and feeling great about his chances.”“It is heartbreaking to know such an accomplished, thoughtful and promising young man is no longer with us, and his leadership on equality in Wilton Manors and beyond will not be forgotten,” Parker said.
