Barney Frank Weds Jim Ready

posted on July 9, 2012

This past weekend, in a ceremony officiated by Massachusetts’ governor, Deval Patrick, Representative Barney Frank, married his longtime boyfriend, Jim Ready, reports Michael M. Grynbaum for The New York Times. The two met in 2005 at a political fundraiser where Ready told Frank that “I had a crush on him for 20 years.” Ready was a teenager in 1987 when Frank became “the first sitting member of Congress to volunteer that he was gay,” writes Grynbaum. “He is now the first to be married to a partner of the same sex.”
