Rep. Barney Frank (D-Mass.) plans to marry his longtime partner in July, which will make him the first member of Congress in a same-sex marriage.
I think its important that my colleagues interact with a married gay man, Frank said in an interview with New York magazine published online Sunday.
Frank, who plans to retire from Congress this year after 16 terms, became the first openly gay member of Congress in 1987. Frank announced in January his plan to marry longtime partner Jim Ready. The marriage will take place in Massachusetts, one of the six states that have legalized gay marriage.
I do think, to be honest, if I was running for reelection, I might have tried to put the marriage off until after the election, because it just becomes a complication, Frank said in the interview. But I did want to get married while I was still in office. He called the ability to do so before he retires an unintended benefit.

Sure. He doesn’t want to die old, alone and without a family like most homosexuals.
It’s disgusting to have this sexual pervert rub this perversion into the noses of all Americans. This guy is disgusting and so is his filthy perverted butt-buddy.
The immorality of all this just amazes me.
Do you mean he’s been living in sin all this time...tsk, tsk.
Barney Frank is a member of the House of Representatives and the House is controlled by Republicans.
The moment Barney Frank enters his “Gay Marriage” the Republican leaders of the House as well as the Republican members of the House can vote to Expel Frank from the House!
Demand that your Republican Congressman move to expel Barney Frank from Congress!
This would also be a great issue going into the 2012 Election!
Ol' Rough and Ready.
He just didn’t want to leave his friends behind.
Aging homosexual Frank is not going to “marry” anyone. With the complicity of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, he is going to seek to legitimize his filthy perversion by going through some kind of bogus public ritual.
I am LMAO. No pun intended.
>>>Sure. He doesnt want to die old, alone and without a family like most homosexuals.>>>
Perhaps his “homo husband” can then collect his retirement.
Kinda like the gay-male version of menstruation.
Hey, that’s great. Maybe they can go have a bunch of butt babies or something.
I think you may have unconvered the very reason that they are getting married. Remember when Obamacare was thrust onto the public and San Fran Nan said it would have to pass for everyone to know what was in it? There were provisions for Congressional members and high ranking officials to be exempted from parts of it.
