Massachusetts State Treasurer Steve Grossman apparently spent his time at last night’s gubernatorial debate, which focused on issues affecting the state’s LGBTQ community, passing a kidney stone, according to campaign spokesman Chandra Allard. The forum was hosted by MassEquality and WGBH at the Boston Public Library Tuesday night.

The Boston Globe reports:

Grossman's pain-level was a 10 on a scale of 1-to-10, Allard said, and yet he fervently answered questions on everything from transgender rights and mandatory sex education to issues facing youth and aging members of the LGBTQ community.
