Four gay lawmakers have created the Arizona Legislature’s first LGBTQ group at the Capitol, vowing to harness their community’s economic power to push harder for equality in Arizona.

On National Coming Out Day, which was Wednesday, LGBT lawmakers and Democratic leadership held a press conference in the rose garden on the Capitol grounds to announce the newly formed caucus.

They said the group will ensure issues affecting lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender Arizonans get the attention of the governor’s office and lawmakers.

State Rep. Daniel Hernandez, D-Tucson, a founding member of the caucus, said while marriage equality for same-sex couples was a good first step, Arizona still has far to go.
