The Gay & Lesbian Victory Fund welcomes Congresswoman Kyrsten Sinema as the keynote speaker at the group's annual Houston Champagne Brunch. Sinema became the first openly bisexual candidate ever elected to the U.S. Congress when she won her race last November with the backing of the Victory Fund, joining a record number of openly gay colleagues and the first openly gay U.S. Senator.
Other brunch speakers scheduled to attend include Mayor Annise Parker, Texas State Rep. Mary González and Pennsylvania State Rep. Brian Sims. Sims last year became the first openly LGBT candidate elected to the Pennsylvania state legislature. González also won in November, becoming the first openly LGBT woman to serve in the Texas legislature, it's first openly LGBT member in more than a decade.
