Recently wed Massachusetts gay Rep. Barney Frank told the Washington Blade that the Democratic Party unanimously backed the inclusion of a gay marriage plank.

“I was part of a unanimous decision to include it,” Frank said. “There was a unanimous decision in the drafting committee to include it in the platform, which I supported, but everybody was for it.”

A DNC staffer, who spoke on condition of anonymity, also the Washington Blade that the platform approved on Sunday not only backs marriage equality, but also rejects Defense of Marriage Act and has positive language with regard to the Employment Non-Discrimination Act.

SFGN will update this story as more information becomes available.
