First Openly Gay Black Man Confirmed As Federal Judge In S. Fl.
Posted June 17th, 2014 @ 5:11pm

The first openly gay black man has been confirmed as a federal judge in the Southern District of Florida by the U.S. Senate.

The vote was unanimous to confirm Darrin P. Gayles, who is currently a Miami-Dade Circuit Court judge.

Obama chose Gayles after a previous openly gay black nominee, fellow Miami-Dade Circuit Judge William Thomas, was blocked by Sen. Marco Rubio last year.
