Tammy Baldwin made history yesterday when she was sworn in as the U.S. Senate's first out member.

Vice President Joe Biden administered the oath of office to the Wisconsin Democrat, who was one of seven out members to take their seats in the 113th Congress. Baldwin, who previously served in the House of Representatives as that chamber's first out lesbian, is also the first woman to represent Wisconsin in the Senate.
