    (CNN)A city in South Florida will have an all-LGBTQ City Commission after Tuesday's election.

    Residents of Wilton Manors voted for three gay candidates, including a mayor and two city commissioners, in the municipal election.

    According to Victory Fund, an organization that works to increase the number of openly LGBTQ officials in all levels of government, Wilton Manors is the second city in the United States to have a city council with all gay members, after Palm Springs, California.

    Commissioner Justin Flippen was elected mayor, while the outgoing mayor, Gary Resnick, won a commissioner seat. Paul Rolli won the second commissioner seat in a four-candidate race.

    Commissioner Scott Newton, the only straight member of the commission, lost his re-election bid.
    The two other commissioners who form the five-person body, Julie Carson and Tom Green, are in the middle of their terms.

    Houston Mayor Annise Parker, president and CEO of Victory Fund, said, "Voters in Wilton Manors clearly understand the leadership LGBTQ elected officials bring to public service and demanded more of it."
    "However, our community remains severely underrepresented at every level of government across this nation, so this is an exciting outlier and is emblematic of the direction our country is heading," Parker said.
