We sit down with former Congressman Barney Frank on the 32nd anniversary of his coming out to discuss his experience being the first openly gay congressman in the United States. Then, Governor's Councillor Eileen Duff, Representative Jack Patrick Lewis and Fenway Health's VP of Government Relations Carl Sciortino, join us to explore what it's like being an out LGBTQ politician in today's world. Finally, Arline Isaacson, the chief lobbyist of the marriage equality movement in Massachusetts, joins us to explore how far we've come in the fight for LGBTQ rights and what still needs to be done.
