Sen. Steve Gallardo of Arizona, who openly opposed a controversial anti-gay bill passed in the Legislature, announced his homosexuality on Wednesday.

“I’m a Latino, I’m a native of Arizona, I come from a Catholic family and I’m gay, it’s OK,” Gallardo told NBC News shortly after he made the announcement at the state Capitol in Phoenix.
