Democrats Ritchie Torres (right) and Mondaire Jones became the first openly LGBT Black men elected to Congress.
Torres will represent New York's 15th District and Jones will represent New York's 17th Congressional District.
"It is the honor of a lifetime to represent a borough filled with essential workers who risked their lives to that New York City could live," said Torres in a statement. "My pledge to the district is simple: I will fight for you. The Bronx is my home, it is what made me who I am, and it is what I will fight for in Congress."
Jones, 33, previously served under the Obama administration in the Office of Legal Policy at the Department of Justice.
Also on Tuesday, Sarah McBride, a Democrat, became the first openly male-to-female trans ever elected to Congress. McBride won the election in Joe Biden's home state of Delaware.
