Florida Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen on Thursday became the first Republican Congress member to pose for the NOH8 Campaign, which raises awareness and funds for gay rights causes, including ending California's 2008 voter-approved gay marriage ban, Proposition 8.

The campaign was on Capitol Hill for its NOH8 on The Hill photo shoot.

“Meet our 1ST Republican Congress member to pose for #NOH8onTheHill!” the NOH8 Campaign tweeted. “Thank you @roslehtinen for taking the lead!”

While Ros-Lehtinen's official photo won't be released for a few weeks, she posed for the campaign in a cream-colored pantsuit and pink blouse.

The NOH8 Campaign later tweeted that 45 members of Congress participated in Thursday's photo shoot, including Representatives Tammy Duckworth of Illinois, Dave Loebsack of Iowa, Donald Payne Jr. of New Jersey, Jim Moran of Virginia and Michelle Lujan Grisham of New Mexico and Senators Martin Heinrich of New Mexico and Richard Blumenthal of Connecticut.
