Record of 7 out Congress members sworn in

Sen. Tammy Baldwin, D-Wis., and six openly gay and bisexual members of the House - including Colorado's own Jared Polis - were sworn in last week, marking the largest number of out lawmakers ever to serve in the Congress at one time. 

"Today LGBT Americans gained powerful, authentic voices on Capitol Hill who will fight for true equality for all, and Congress became more representative of our country," said Chuck Wolfe, president and CEO of the Victory Fund. “We could not be more proud of these seven exceptional men and women.”
