No but really, this is an important and awesome step.
PA Gov appoints Transgender Woman as Physician General. We Applaud.
Those of us who support the LGBQT community here in PA have an excellent ally in our new Governor Tom Wolf, who made a huge stride in American History by naming Dr. Rachel Levine as America's first transgender State appointed Physician General.
I mean it's LGBTQ traditionally, let's not put trans people anymore into the back than they already are. But yeah, wow, I'm pleasantly surprised to see a trans woman in any serious government position.
I'm also going to take this post to remind everyone that trans women, especially trans women of color, face a massive amount of violence. Cops abuse and murder them all the time, but there's not much in the way of outrage.
Protect, uplift, and celebrate black trans women at all costs.
