The U.S. Senate on Thursday confirmed Nitza Quiñones Alejandro to a spot on the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania, making her the first openly gay Latina to hold a federal judgeship.

“A Puerto Rico native, Quiñones breaks a glass ceiling as the first openly LGBT Hispanic to serve on the federal bench,” the Blade reports. “Additionally, she’s the seventh openly LGBT person ever to receive confirmation as a federal judge.”

President Obama first nominated Quiñones to the federal judgeship in November and renominated her in January. At this afternoon’s White House LGBT Pride Month Reception, he congratulated her, “even though she couldn’t be here today, because she’s getting ready to finally take her seat on the bench and get to work,” he said.

Huge deal. Congratulations to her!
