Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand is one of almost 20 Democratic presidential candidates campaigning in Iowa this weekend ahead of the state’s caucuses, and the visit happens to coincide with Capital City Pride in Des Moines.

The 2020 hopeful celebrated LGBTQ Pride by popping into the Blazing Saddle, a popular gay bar in Des Moines, the Des Moines Register reports. The Saddle, as locals call it, opened in 1983 and is the oldest gay bar in town.

Rocking her official rainbow-colored “Love is Brave” campaign T-shirt, Gillibrand pointed at the bar from the street, turned to followers, and said, “Anybody want a drink inside? I’ll buy.”

While pouring drinks from behind the bar, Gillibrand answered policy questions, shared campaign details, and listened to her customers like any good bartender should.

She also discussed her new comprehensive plan to fight for LGBTQ rights if elected president. Her proposals include the passage of the Equality Act, a nationwide ban of conversion therapy, expanding access to HIV-prevention meds, and reissuing guidance to public schools allowing trans students to use facilities aligning with their gender identity.

Needless to say, the thirsty crowd was here for all of it.

The New York lawmaker, who announced her presidential campaign in January, had visited the Saddle in April when she joined drag performers backstage and gave one queen the dress off her back.

Responding to a headline about Friday’s Saddle takeover that reported she “slings drinks, dances, and talks LGBTQ policy,” the 52-year-old politician tweeted they were a “few of my favorite things.”

Earlier in the day, Gillibrand was spotted shopping for Pride merch at local retailer Raygun with Chasten Buttigieg, beloved husband of her 2020 opponent Pete Buttigieg. Because Pride brings everyone together, doesn’t it?

Speaking about her LGBTQ rights agenda at a Pride candidate forum near the Iowa Capitol, Gillibrand returned to the Saddle on Saturday to meet up with local drag queen Vanna B. Rosenberg and Kyla Paterson, first trans female president of the Stonewall Democratic Caucus.

Gillibrand, who has represented New York in the Senate since 2009, has a documented history of supporting the LGBTQ community.

In 2015 she joined other local lawmakers in encouraging the state to honor New York City’s historic Stonewall Inn with a national park. She was also a main force behind the fight to repeal “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell.”

Last February she was an honored speaker at HRC’s annual New York gala. “Sen. Gillibrand is on the front lines of the battle against the Trump-Pence administration’s politics of hate, fear, and discrimination,” wrote HRC president Chad Griffin in a statement. “From fighting back against Trump’s transgender military ban to pushing for LGBTQ non-discrimination protections, Sen. Gillibrand stands shoulder to shoulder with the LGBTQ community as a champion of equality.”
