Barney Frank

Barney Frank will most likely be remembered as one of the most courageous figures in American public service. What was simply and purely a fact of his inner life he bravely chose to quit concealing: He came out as a gay man in the late '80s, the first member of Congress to do such a thing. Out and pretty damn loud, the representative from Massachusetts remained unabashedly liberal throughout his 32 years in office. The trailblazer with the tousled hair also just published a candid new memoir, Frank, which he discusses tonight.
