Rep. Robert Garcia, the homosexual congressional freshman from California, took to the ground of the US House of Representatives yesterday to pay tribute to Beyoncé.

Garcia did so to mark the top of Black History Month and the beginning of Women’s History Month. He stated Beyoncé is “an individual who represents both so well.”

He spoke alongside a big {photograph} of Beyoncé, saying, “She’s an icon, she’s a legend, and she is now and forever the moment.” This was a nod towards a Wendy Williams meme second.

“I want to celebrate none other than who I believe is the undisputed queen of pop and R&B, Beyoncé Knowles Carter,” he continued.

Highlighting her latest record-breaking win of a thirty second Grammy award, Garcia stated, “But Beyoncé is so much more than a performer and a singer. She’s a creator and an artist. When the radio said to speed it up, she went slower,” he added (“Radio say speed it up I just go slower” is a lyric from the Beyoncé monitor “Partition”).

He stated that listening to Destiny’s Child for the primary time, “was life-changing for me and the way I experienced music. I became an instant fan then and have been a huge fan ever since.”

He praised Beyoncé as a task mannequin who has, “stood up for voting rights, for feminism, for women and girls, for my community — the LGBTQ+ community — and for my generation as so many others.”

He concluded, “She simply is the greatest of all time. Her story is history. Mrs. Carter, congratulations on your achievements and for winning the most Grammys ever in the history of our country.”

Later, Garcia advised EW why he selected to honor Beyoncé.

“People celebrate American excellence all the time in Congress,” Garcia stated. “There’s American excellence by academics, by the medical group, by elected officers, by people that served our nation honorably within the navy. These are all American heroes. Beyoncé in her personal approach can be an American hero.

“And for millions of people in our country, she is an icon, she’s an inspiration, she’s someone that actually impacts people’s lives. And so I think it’s important to celebrate different kinds of people, especially as we’re celebrating the contributions of Black Americans and women in this country, she’s an incredible example of an American icon and I was happy to honor her.”

Garcia, 45, represents California’s forty second District, which covers Downey, Long Beach and Santa Catalina Island. He turned the primary out-gay immigrant elected to Congress when he received his election within the midterms final November.

Garcia rapidly demonstrated a love and information of widespread tradition. He used a meme of NeNe Leakes to warn Marjorie Taylor Greene of his arrival in Congress.

In January, he was sworn in over a replica of the primary Superman comedian from the Library of Congress. He defined that as a baby, newly arrived within the US from Peru, his love of Superman comics helped him to study English.
