On Election Day this year, Florida went from having zero openly gay lawmakers in the state Legislature to two.
David Richardson won a seat in the Florida House representing Miami Beach and Joe Saunders won a seat representing a part of Orlando. Both men are openly gay.
Up until last week, Florida was the biggest state in the U.S. to have never elected an openly gay person to office in their state legislature.
Chuck Wolfe, president of the Gay and Lesbian Victory Fund, says that Florida was actually part of a national trend.
