Al McAffrey was born in Konawa, Oklahoma. He has served, since November 16, 2006, as a member of the Oklahoma House of Representatives. A Democrat, he won the party's primary on July 25, 2006 in the state's 88th district. No Republican filed for the seat, which is based in downtown Oklahoma City, so his primary victory assured him of election. He was re-elected unopposed in 2008.

He is the first ever openly gay member of the Oklahoma Legislature and only the second openly gay public official in the history of Oklahoma. His election campaigns have won the support of the Gay & Lesbian Victory Fund.
