U.S. Congresswoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz represents South Floridians from the Sawgrass to the Seagrass. She has also never waived in her commitment to human rights and the LGBT community.

Wasserman Schultz, 49, has a lot on her plate these days, chairing the Democratic National Committee and facing her first ever primary challenger. Last year, she invited a same-sex couple from Miami to attend President Obama’s State of the Union speech. Wasserman Schultz was also the recipient of the Jamie Bloodworth Award, a recognition presented annually by the Dolphin Democratic Club to a woman for advocacy of and support of LGBT issues.

“I have known Debbie since 2006 and she has been a long time champion for the LGBT community and served as the original vice chair of the Congressional LGBT Equality Caucus,” said Broward County human rights advocate Michael Rajner. “Last June in Washington D.C., she was the first sitting member of Congress to officiate a same-sex wedding in the shadow of the Supreme Court. Over the years, Debbie has been a go to person when a crisis arose affecting either the LGBT or HIV/AIDS community.”
