Barney Frank, the first openly gay member of the U.S. House of Representatives, is getting married to his longtime partner Jim Ready.
The couple, who met six years ago, have not yet set a date.
The Massachusetts congressman isn't providing any further details but he told Charlie Rose in an interview earlier this month: 'I have a partner now. I’m in love for the first time in my life.'
Frank is 71 and Ready is 42.
