The Bay Area Rapid Transit District board will be led for the first time by two out women, directors decided at their December 16 meeting.

Rebecca Saltzman, a lesbian, is the new president, while Janice Li, a queer woman of color, is the vice president. Saltzman represents District 3 on the transit agency's board, which includes part of Alameda and Contra Costa counties.

Li represents District 8, which includes parts of San Francisco. The new positions are technically effective immediately, though Saltzman said there won't be a BART board meeting until January 13, as Thursday's was the last of the year.
