Danica Roem paves way for transgender politicians

Among the many pieces of positive election news today is this: Danica Roem was elected to the Virginia House of Delegates and will be the first openly transgender person to serve in a state legislature. This, folks, is a big, big deal.

Perhaps even more shocking? She sings in a heavy metal band.

Danica won because she’s been an advocate for local issues for years. She won because people saw what she could do for them and voted accordingly.

Sometimes humanity wins out. Good luck, Danica, and thank you on many counts! (And here’s a nice PS to the story in the Washington Post.)
