Taylor Small, the first out transgender state legislator in Vermont, had something extra to celebrate at President Joe Biden’s signing of the Respect for Marriage Act Tuesday — she got a marriage proposal from her partner of four years, Carsen Russell.“I, of course, said YES and could not think of a more fitting way to celebrate this moment,” Small tweeted along with pictures of her and Russell on the White House South Lawn.

Her post was headlined “We’re officially en-GAY-ged!” Small, from Winooski, was elected to the Vermont House of Representatives in 2020, when she was only 26, and was reelected this year.
