Out an proud transgender woman, been out 25 years. Activist and agitator, with political aspirations. Am currently the first openly-transgender elected Precinct Chair in the history of Wake County, North Carolina - and the first openly-trans person in the history of the State of North Carolina to publicly declare candidacy for the State Legislature.
A new proposed agreement filed in federal court on Friday would make clear that transgender people can use restrooms and other public facilities that align with their gender identity, but Republican state legislative leaders continue to oppose it.
I will use this space, and my column, to bring light on issues concerning Social Justice where it relates to the transgender community, as well as share from my own personal journey.
