Al Franken has answered the Minnesota Stonewall DFL Questionaire (link) including with the news that several members of his staff "identify" as LGBT. That's important: he probably suspects that some haven't got around to "identifying" themselves as such, but he's hesitant to press the issue since that's only used against Republicans.
I note also that the reply has a certain form letter quality to it, so herewith I suggest a nifty copy-n-paste block he can use for future questionnaires:
First, as we will for every community, we'll devote time, energy, and resources to reaching out to the [INSERT COMMUNITY NAME HERE] by holding and attending events in the community, being visible in our support for the community, and standing with the community when it counts. That means voter registration events, [INSERT COMMUNITY NAME HERE]-specific literature, and issue-focused discussions – all geared towards energizing the community and building lasting relationships.
