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.
