On Sunday, State Sen. Brad Hoylman was sworn into office, making him the only openly gay member of that legislative body. It was a family affair, as Hoylman’s husband, David, and their toddler Silvia joined the lawmaker on stage at the FIT Haft Auditorium. District Judge J. Paul Oetken, the first openly gay man to serve on the federal bench, swore Hoylman into office.
