In about two weeks, retiring congressman and leading gay-rights activist Barney Frank will marry his partner Jim Ready, of Ogunquit, during a private ceremony in Newton, Mass. After that, Frank says, he’ll work to ensure that same-sex nuptials are legal in Maine.
The Massachusetts Democrat has already participated in fundraising for the campaign to legalize same-sex marriage, but Frank said he plans to become more involved in the effort.
“We’re getting married in Massachusetts this summer,” Frank said during an interview with the Press Herald. “We want to get married in Maine … but it’s not legal.”
