"When a child who is different from other children has the courage to be who they are, then when you have a supportive school system, they will come and rally around," said Billy DeFrank LGBT Community Center Board President Gabrielle Antolovich. "And usually, the parents are part of that." [KGO interview]
Frank: A Life in Politics from the Great Society to Same-Sex Marriage

Peninsula Arts & Letters/Kepler's Books are excited to bring Barney Frank to the Peninsula to celebrate his political career and the publication of his forthcoming memoir, Frank: A Life in Politics from the Great Society to Same-Sex Marriage:
Join us for an unforgettable evening with America's smartest, feistiest, and funniest politician, Barney Frank. In Frank's candid and witty political memoir, Frank: A Life in Politics from the Great Society to Same-Sex Marriage, we find out how a disheveled, intellectually combative gay Jew with a trademark New Jersey-Massachusetts accent, became one of the most powerful and effective members of Congress.
In Frank, he chronicles his lifelong struggle against inequality, which culminated in co-writing the most significant Wall Street regulations since the Great Depression. Barney Frank continues to be an important voice for economic fairness at a time when many of the regulations he authored are being challenged.
With his trademark directness and insight, Frank explores the emotional toll of living in the closet and how he became the first member of Congress to voluntarily disclose his homosexuality. He also details the favors, grudges, and fears that shape a legislator's career.
We can't wait to hear Frank's legendary rhetorical skills in action and to spend an evening with the person who led the debate on some of the most significant issues of our time. Barney Frank represented the Fourth Congressional District of Massachusetts for nearly five decades, and chaired the House Financial Services Committee from 2007 to 2013. He is the first member of congress to enter a same-sex marriage while serving in office.
