2012 ThinkProgress Tumblr Honoree

Meet U.S. Representative Kyrsten Sinema, from Arizona’s 9th district. Labeled by her Republican opponent as an anti-American “pagan hippie,” Sinema is both the first openly bisexual member of Congress and the first member of Congress to publicly describe her religion as “none.” 
Sinema, a former social worker and criminal defense lawyer, proves that honesty about one’s beliefs and identity does not doom one to political irrelevance.

This, in 2012, seemed both long overdue and increasingly inevitable. A lot of really big, really important “firsts” in our politics last year, in the forms of some very worthy and exciting new figures.
