Democrat Jared Polis becomes first gay Member of Congress to become a parent

(D) Jared Polis
It's great to see news like this make the internet and hopefully, the media. This article comes to us from, the British blog of worldwide news related to politics and gay issues (sign up for their newsletter for lots of current information.)

It is also great to see that a member of the US Congress, openly gay, has become the proud parent of son Caspian Julius, who was born on September 30th. What a fantastic event for Congressman Polis and his partner Caspian Reis. The birth and announcement is also a step forward in the fight for equal rights in a country that has so much going wrong at the moment. We wish a wonderful life for the Congressman, his partner, and especially Caspian.

Fellow Democrats Barney Frank, David Cicilline and Tammy Baldwin are the other three  openly-gay lawmakers in the House of Representatives.

PS: In a related article from GayAgenda a little sarcasm worth the read.
