Congress Getting Gay

Jerry Nadler’s sure feeling celebratory today. The New York politico and some of his bipartisan pals met in Washington today to launch the Congressional Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender Equality Caucus, on which Nadler will act as vice-chair under homo-politicos Barney Frank and Tammy Baldwin.

From the press release:

“I am proud to serve as a vice-chair on the bipartisan Congressional Caucus on LGBT Equality,” said Rep. Nadler. “Many of us in Congress have been fighting hard for LGBT equality for years, and this Caucus will help provide a unified voice on these important issues. I am confident that with this new Caucus we can, someday soon, live in an America where true equality is a fact of life for the LGBT community.”

The mission of the Congressional LGBT Equality Caucus is to promote lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender LGBT equality. By serving as a resource for Members of Congress, their staff, and the public on LGBT issues, the Caucus will work toward the extension of equal rights, the repeal of discriminatory laws, the elimination of hate-motivated violence, and the improved health and well being for all regardless of sexual orientation or gender identity/expression.

Let the conservative outcry begin!

    “Bipatisan” …. so, there’ll be Republicans on this caucus? Yeah, suuure …

    But, anyway, this is indeed good news! We can always rely on Barney and Tammy!

    According to Advocate.com, the caucus has two Republicans with more expected to sign this week. Guys, we have to work across the aisle.

    I think there are probably quite a few Northeastern, Floridian, and Western Republicans who will sign onto this. God bless them all. Hopefully this doesn’t become some partisan hack organisation like the CBC became.

    That’s riot. The CBC is all Democrats because the GOP can’t elected any blacks except one,a nd he left office.
