With Kyrsten Sinema’s Senate victory, an already-promising year for LGBT politicians became even better.

Kyrsten Sinema is the first openly bisexual person elected to Congress. She’s also the first woman elected to the U.S. Senate from Arizona. Sharice Davids, a lesbian, won a seat in Kansas and Rep. Jared Polis, D-Colo., was elected governor of Colorado. Chad Griffin, president of the Human Rights Campaign, said the wins are a rejection of the Trump administration. Gay Americans have previously expressed frustration with President Donald Trump’s polices and proposals.
