This Women’s History Month, HRC is celebrating the work of HRC-endorsee Rep. Kyrsten Sinema of Arizona. As the first openly bisexual member of Congress, Rep. Sinema has worked to promote equality since her election in 2012.
She was elected to the Arizona State House at the age of 28 before moving up to the State Senate, where she voted against a state constitutional amendment to ban same-sex marriage and a bill that would remove the right of same-sex couples to adopt children jointly. She was also a member of the HRC Pheonix Steering Committee where she co-chaired the Diversity Committee.
As we look back and celebrate how far we’ve come, HRC is also look forward and acknowledge Rep. Sinema, and our other female endorsees who stand for the ideal of equality for all, including LGBT Americans. They are facing tough elections in November, and we look forward to continuing to support them.
