First trans* person running for office in Florida →

gaywrites:

A trans* woman who is running for the Orange County Commission in Florida could be the first transgender person elected to office in the Southeast.

Gina Duncan is a small business owner focusing her campaign on economic issues. She’s unopposed in the Democratic primary and will face a Republican incumbent in November.

Here’s the Advocate.com writeup of Duncan’s recent appearance in a TV segment for local media:

The segment focuses on her tireless campaign efforts and her emphasis on job growth in the region, treating her transgender identity as incidental, while acknowledging the potentially history-making nature of her candidacy, as she would be the first transgender person elected to office in the southeastern United States. Reporter Chase Cain does ask her when being transgender will not longer be an issue, and she says, “Maybe not in my lifetime, but someday being transgender means no more than being right- or left-handed.”

Good for her! Excited to see what comes of the race.

I was getting really frustrated with it constantly saying “her” even though I didn’t have my gender shown in my profile, and this video showed me how to change it. :]

Girl Scouts of Colorado Issue Statement Welcoming Transwomen Youth

Yesterday, the Girl Scouts of Colorado spoke out in support of transgender children. Following the story of a child who was denied enrollment in a local Girl Scout troop despite identifying as a girl, the Girl Scouts of Colorado released a statement saying that the associate responsible for that troop was unaware of the organization’s policy. “Girl Scouts is an inclusive organization and we accept all girls in Kindergarten through 12th grade as members,” the statement says. “If a child identifies as a girl and the child’s family presents her as a girl, Girl Scouts of Colorado welcomes her as a Girl Scout.” Girl Scouts of Colorado also asserted that it is reaching out to the family of the excluded child and will be altering its training programs so that all girls are supported.

Trigger warning (trans/homophobic language): Too trans to tango? US debates Chaz Bono on reality TV →

When Chaz Bono takes to the floor on American television’s “Dancing with the Stars” later this month, he won’t be lacking for fans — or detractors.

The 42-year-old LGBT (lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender) activist formerly known as Chastity Bono is the first transgender contestant on the US version of the globally popular reality television series.

MI Republican Introduces Anti-Trans Prisoner Bill →

Representative Hooker’s bill is ill-conceived and is yet another attack on the gay and transgender population of Michigan by this Legislature. To the best of my knowledge, only one other state — Wisconsin — has ever passed such a bill and the federal courts struck it down as unconstitutional. Lawmakers should not be in the business of legislating medical care and should not be substituting its judgment for that of the medical profession in such matters. For Representative Hooker to dance to the tune played by Mr. Glenn, the head of an organization labeled as a hate group by the Southern Law Poverty Center is the very antithesis of the “common-sense” he purports to be exercising. I extend an offer to Mr. Hooker to meet with me and discuss this issue in greater detail.”
