Rep. Barbara Lee Wins Top Slot Among House’s Most Pro-Gay


The website ThinkProgress last week rounded-up the seven most anti-gay U.S. Representatives. This week they've followed up with a tally the most pro-equality Representatives.

California Congresswoman Barbara Lee comes in first, thanks to her co-sponsorship of 23 out of 27 pro-LGBT laws. Though D.C. Delegate Eleanor Holmes Norton also backed 23 pieces of legislation, she is a non-voting member and therefore not part of the 11.

The other ten are all Democrats: Reps. Tammy Baldwin, Keith Ellison, Bob Filner, Raul M. Grijalva, John Lewis, Carolyn Maloney, Gwen Moore, Forney "Pete" Stark, Edophus Towns and Lynn C. Woosley.
