Reps Frank & Baldwin To Address Dems

UPDATE: Barney Frank spoke @ 5:30 EST & Tammy Baldwin spoke @ 6:30 EST :)
Last night watching the Democratic National Convention was a bit scarce of speakers addressing our LGBT community but that all changes tonight. Rep. Barney Frank (D-Mass.) who originally was scheduled to speak last night will now speak just ahead of President Obama according to a Democratic official. As you know Barney is the longest openly gay member of Congress who will be retiring this year. He married his partner Jim Ready in July so it will be extremely interesting to hear what Frank has to say about marriage equality & our LGBT issues. The scheduling change also means that Frank will speak on the same night as openly gay Congresswoman Tammy Baldwin of Wisconsin who is currently running for the US Senate in that state. Frank & Baldwin are also the co-chairs of The Congressional LGBT Equality Caucus. All I can say is that you’re not going to want to miss a minute of this historic LGBT event tonight. The best way to catch this coverage will be on C-SPAN unless you want to see how openly gay commentators Anderson Cooper or Rachel Maddow handle the broadcast. I have a feeling this is going to be a truly great night for our LGBT community & America. This will be quite the contrast from the anti gay homophobic GOP convention last week where they didn’t feature a single openly gay speaker. Updates to Come…:)
