Rep. Frank has been in Congress since 1981. Before being elected to that position, he was a Massachusetts State Representative and an assistant to the Mayor of Boston. In 1982, he won his first full term, and has been re-elected by wide margins ever since. In 1987, he became the second openly gay member of the House of Representatives, and he has become one of the most prominent LGBT politicians in the United States.
