Not enough that will come out.

Congress doesn't reflect the proportions of demographics in the United States (if that is the congress you're referring to) in general.
Women make up only about 23% while in the country in general it is slightly over half.
The median age of congress is like... late 50s while the median age of the country is late 30s.
I guess there are 10 total openly LGBTQ+ people in Senate and House combined since the most recent election, and that's great . But since a federal level equal rights bill has not passed, it is obviously not enough. Same goes for how congress is the most diverse its ever been in terms of race/ethnicity. However, there are still many issues of systemic racism in this country.

No. Those LGBT members are, for the most part, still in their closets.

You don't have to be LGBT to represent their interests. But either way, no, and that's why LGBT is still not covered by the Equal Rights act.

There are too many lesbians and tranny lovers in Congress and not nearly enough gorgeous, masculine gay men.
In the next ten years gay men will overtake the lezzies and trannies.

The only demographic represented by Congress is millionaires.
