Lynn Schulman Returns to a Familiar Arena

Out lesbian City Council candidate Lynn Schulman is in the midst of her third campaign for City Council in Queens’ District 29 — and this time she hopes to make some history.

After running for City Council in 2001 and 2009, Schulman is back on the campaign trail with a goal of bringing change to the district, which encompasses Forest Hills, Kew Gardens, Rego Park, Richmond Hill, and Maspeth. Unlike her previous bids for office, however, this time she is navigating a campaign during the coronavirus pandemic, which she said has “laid bare” existing disparities in the city — particularly in the area of public health.
