Saturday night in Hartford, the inaugural ball for Mayor Pedro Segarra raised money for nonprofits and for charity.

Before heading into the ballroom, Segarra surprised his spouse, Charlie Ortiz, with a belated birthday cake.

“It was his birthday while I was in Washington D., C., this past week,” said Segarra who attended a conference there. “That’s the hard part when you have to do what you do as mayor and family has to wait.”

Segarra is second openly gay mayor of a state capital. The first was David Cicilline of Providence, now a member of Congress.
