Trans (and Republican) in the time of Trump

Trans (and Republican) in the time of Trump

An exerpt from my latest at The CommonWealth Magazine:

The LGBTQ+ community doesn’t need fair-weather friends. The community needs loud allies, allies who not only vote when it matters but shout that they’ve voted. The community needs allies who stand against dangerous ballot initiatives, dangerous language in our Republican Party platform, and, most importantly, stand as candidates themselves. This is the rare instance where words might be more important than private votes. We need you and we need you now, and if you refuse to lend us your voice during a time when we need it the most, then your support is nothing.
