Columbia’s First Openly Gay Congressman Seeks Re-election

The first openly gay man elected to Colombia’s congress says he plans to run for a second term in 2022. Congressman Mauricio Toro told the Washington Blade on Sept. 21 during a Zoom interview from Bogotá, “I think that I will be re-elected to the House of Representatives.” Voters elected him in 2018. Colombian Sen. Angélica Lozano, a bisexual Colombian senator and Green Alliance member who is married to Bogotá Mayor Claudia López, is the only other openly LGBTQ person in the Congress.
