Rep. Barney Frank's 40 year career in politics has evolved in time with the Gay Rights movement. It's a career that began as a closeted elected official in the 70s and will conclude later this year after he becomes the first congressman to marry his same-sex partner.
Rep. Frank will marry Jim Ready, his partner of five years, at a small ceremony in Frank's hometown of Newton, Massachusetts. He'll retire when the current term ends.
Takeaway Washington correspondent Todd Zwillich sat down with Rep. Frank to discuss the wedding, how he plans to spend his time away from Congress, and his status as a gay icon.
