Here’s a happy story, thats kinda reminds me of the San Diego Mayor Jerry Sanders’ reversal on gay rights. Rep. Steve Rothman (D-NJ) has reversed his stance on gay marriage, after his step-daughter came out to him as a lesbian. Rothman then joined the House’s GLBT Caucus.

The Advocate: Reps. Tammy Baldwin (D-Wisc.) and Barney Frank (D. Mass.) announced today the formation of the LGBT Equality Caucus. The 52-member bipartisan group, which includes two Republicans, marks the nation’s first congressional caucus with the express purpose of advancing equal rights for LGBT people, repealing discriminatory laws and educating lawmakers on gay issues. Baldwin and Frank, both openly gay, co-chair the Caucus.
