Jason Bartlett becomes Nation's first black and openly gay legislator

WASHINGTON, DC --History was made earlier today as State Representative Jason Bartlett (2nd District Connecticut) publicly came out as gay. His announcement makes him the highest ranking African American and openly gay politician in the United States. The National Black Justice Coalition proudly congratulates Rep. Bartlett for both his courage and for his political accomplishments.
