Gay Equality Caucus Formed In Congress

The House of Representatives currently has two openly gay members – Tammy Baldwin (D-WI) and Barney Frank (D-MA).

Since there aren’t enough openly gay members for a traditional “caucus” (like the Black Caucus or the Hispanic Caucus), Representatives Baldwin and Frank will co-chair the LGBT Equality Caucus – consisting of members who are friendly to Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender causes.

The Caucus currently consists of 52 members of Congress – all Democrats. One of the Vice Chairs is my Congressman, Jerrold Nadler. We love Congressman Nadler on the West Side of Manhattan – and I have held fundraisers here at the restaurant for him.

Isn’t it wonderful when the DEMOCRATS control Congress?...

As a lifelong Democrat, I am a bit saddened that less than 25% of the Democrats in the House are participating in this Caucus. While it is a wonderful and valiant step forward, while 75% want to see if it will hurt anyone in elections.

Keep moving forward Tammy & Barney, and keep fighting for the [little d] democratic principle of equality for all.
