David Maher, Mayor of Cambridge, Massachusetts, has opened up about his sexuality at an annual Pride brunch, making him the third consecutive gay Mayor for the town.

"In the early 1990s my city council colleague Ken Reeves came out as the first openly gay mayor of Cambridge -- since that time Denise Simmons and I have both had the privilege and honor of serving as mayor,"

Both Ken and Denise served as openly gay mayors, making Maher the third consecutive gay mayor for Cambridge, Massachusetts in the US.

Insisting that his statement was not mean to be taken as a big announcement, he later told the Cambridge Chronicle "I have never made a secret about who I am or what I am,"

"I’ve tried very hard to separate my public life from my private life."

Maher has been live with his partner for 30 years.
