By now you all should know how I feel about “Benedict Donald” tRump. From his election day on, I watched in desperation as he tried to destroy at the least the transgender community and at the worst our country as a whole.
I can only share this screen shot taken from the “Tony Burgess Blog” and CNN which shares my shame and horror. It’s what happens when a masterplan to dumb down the country by neglecting it’s educational system and then lie continually to it by right wing media outlets. All of a sudden, being conservative in the country became the same as being a tRump supporter. Which isn’t fair or good for the health of the political system.
I’m not here to write another political post but I’m am here to say the shame of yesterday can not happen again.
“Rosemary Ketchum won a seat on a City Council in West Virginia, making her the first openly transgender elected official in the state. Ketchum, 26, was elected to the Wheeling City Council, after running on a platform addressing affordable housing and opioid addiction.I am incredibly grateful to get the opportunity to represent my city” Ketchum said in a statement to CNN. “I hope that this election helps us push the needle in West Virginia so that we can fully embrace the power of culture, diversity, and representation in politics. I ran for office because I believe the job of an elected official is to reflect the values of their community in the actions of their leadership and that is why I am excited to serve.”
In the transgender community we need all of this style of young trans leadership we can find!
