Former Democratic Rep. Barney Frank appeared on Sunday's episode of Meet The Press and gave his viewpoint on changing attitudes toward LGBT people and Congress. Rep. Frank reasoned that the increasing visibility of LGBT people in everyday culture is because of LGBT people's refusal to stay in the closet, which is helping erase stereotypes and change perceptions.

As for Americans' views on Congress, Rep. Frank told host Chuck Todd that the anger directed toward Congress stems from peoples’ shattered beliefs in a system they truly believed to work.

Watch Rep. Frank elaborate on the two topics, along with how his fellow representatives reacted to his marriage to husband James Ready, AFTER THE JUMP

Transgender Man Describes How Coming Out To His Lesbian Girlfriend Led to Marriage: VIDEO

Screen Shot 2015-02-12 at 2.34.02 PM

A transgender man shared his touching coming out story with I’m From Driftwood, a LGBTQA story archive, on how he came out as a transgender man to his lesbian girlfriend. 

Said Mitch:

"We actually met online, on the site OKCupid. So we had this great dynamic from the start. I was, at the time, really, like, [a] kind of butch - or masculine-identified woman, and she is and always has been - remains - a really feminine-identified woman. It wasn't something, even when I entered the relationship, that I was thinking, 'This is something I need to tell her about me,' it's hard to explain how I had compartmentalized that part of me and just put it somewhere else, and it hadn't come to the fore for several years."

A year into their relationship, Jocelyn’s faith in Mitch gave him the strength to come out to his girlfriend as transgender. Mitch’s coming out was emotional, but Mitch’s courage in coming out led to the two’s engagement and marriage.

Lance Bass Talks Wedding, Growing Up Gay in the South, and Feeling 'Liberated' as a Married Man: VIDEO

Lance bass

Lance Bass and hubby Michael Turchin sat down with GLAAD: All Access host Claire Pires to discuss their tv special Lance Loves Michael: The Lance Bass Wedding which airs tonight on E!

In the interview, Bass (who grew up in Mississippi) revealed one of the main reasons why he wanted to televise his wedding in the first place:

"Growing up gay in the south is very lonely. So that's one of the main reasons I wanted to do this special was to give hope out there for small town kids to watch this special and let them know that there's nothing wrong with you. You can have this if you want it." 

The two also dished on the funny story of Turchin's proposal, the "humorous" planning that went into the wedding itself (which will be America's first televised same-sex wedding special) and on Lisa Vanderpump of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills being "appalled" at the state of their kitchenware before the big day. 

Later, the two shared why marriage means so much to them.

Said Bass:

"Once you're able to say 'husband' it just means so much more. And it means much more to everyone else. Because they treat you differently, they really do. They take you seriously. Then the next question is 'When are you having kids?' You feel like a whole human being....completely liberated, a whole person. No longer a second class citizen anymore - to be able to say 'husband' instead of 'civil partner'"

Bass and Turchin also did a separate interview with Meredith Vieira where they discussed their support for Alabama state Rep. Patricia Todd's pledge to "out" anti-gay lawmakers having extramarital affairs.
