Rep. Kyrsten Sinema has become Arizona’s next U.S. Senator making Sinema the first openly bisexual person elected to the U.S. Senate. Sinema is the first openly bisexual member of the U.S. House of Representative. Throughout her public service, she has been a champion for the LGBTQ community, serving as a co-chair of the chamber’s Equality Caucus, earning a perfect 100 on HRC’s Congressional Scorecards during her three terms in Congress, and co-sponsoring the Equality Act, crucial federal legislation that would finally guarantee explicit, permanent protections for LGBTQ people under our nation’s civil rights law. Sinema defeated Rep. Martha McSally, a longtime opponent of marriage equality who has consistently supported discriminatory, anti-LGBTQ policies and proposals while in Congress, including an amendment that would allow discrimination against LGBTQ people by taxpayer-funded organizations.
