Barney Frank Weds Longtime Partner; First Congressman in Same-Sex Marriage
This is great, but I look forward to the day when articles like this will say “boyfriend” or “fiance” instead of “longtime partner”. We don’t need the double speak anymore.
Democratic Rep. Barney Frank wed his longtime partner, James Ready, on Saturday, becoming the first sitting congressman to enter into a same-sex marriage.
Massachusetts Gov. Deval Patrick officiated the ceremony and added some levity by saying Frank, 72, and Ready, 42, had vowed to love each other through Democratic and Republican administrations alike, and even through appearances on Fox News, according to Al Green, a Democratic congressman from Texas.
