Danica Roem



This may honestly be my favorite #WCW submission yet, because of both the historical nature of the election, as well as her opponent in the race.

Meet Danica Roem, who yesterday became the first openly transgender state lawmaker in Virginia, winning her election for the 13th House of Delegates. The victory was especially sweet (so…so sweet) in that she beat out republican Bob Marshall, who referred to himself as Virginia’s “chief homophobe” in 2006 when co-sponsoring a Virginia constitutional amendment banning same-sex marriage, and who also introduced a bathroom bill against transgender public school students. Don’t let the door hit ya on the way out, Bob!
