Freshman Congressman is Hill's newest out member

Rep. David Cicilline, D-R.I., is profiled in this day-in-the-life look at the freshman member of Congress. Cicilline this year joined Reps. Tammy Baldwin, D-Wis., Barney Frank, D-Mass., and our own Jared Polis, D-Colo., as the nation's only openly gay and lesbian federal lawmakers. 

As a member of the Foreign Affairs Committee, Cicilline says he wants hearings on anti-LGBT activity in Uganda, but he's also interested in exploring an omnibus American LGBT rights bill.
