Barney Frank Weds Longtime Partner in Massachusetts

barney frank wedding

U.S. Democratic Representative Barney Frank married his longtime partner Jim Ready in Massachusetts on Saturday.

Frank was already esteemed for being the first congressman ever to come out voluntarily. In addition, his marriage makes him the first sitting congressman to marry a person of the same sex. Massachusetts governor Deval Patrick officiated the wedding and approximately 300 friends and colleagues attended.

NBC reported the ceremony truly took on a Frank-like sense of humor when Patrick mentioned that Frank and Ready had vowed to love each other “through Democratic and Republican administrations alike.”

Congratulations to the happy couple!
