Danica Roem made myself and a lot of other people cry last night when she won a race in VA against an LGBTQ bigot. Metal Riot has two trans writers, myself included, so it was certainly nice to see some national representation turn the tide on hate. Minneapolis even elected their first African American trans woman to city council! We are regular people who just want to live our lives.
Parker Molloy from Upworthy had one of my favorite reactions on Twitter:
If there's one thing Danica Roem's election tells us, it should be that it's time to start the Draft G.L.O.S.S. for Congress campaign.
