Trans Politics 2020
Play • 36 min

With the Presidential Election closing in on us, we approach looking towards politics through a lens of hope with Samantha Allen, journalist and author of Real Queer America, and discuss trans resistance in red states. Then, we are joined by Honey Mahogany, the first Black, out trans elected official in California about pushing for meaningful change on a local level. 

Trans Joy: Sarah McBride, who is currently running the State Senate race in Delaware, joins us to talk about the pressing need for change.
