So Many Great Things Are Happening for Trans People!

Gonna leave you with a positive for the weekend. It's just been win after win for trans rights lately, which is the opposite of what it usually is!

First, NYC is being actively cool about bathrooms, using a trans woman of color for their ad campaign:

A trans-positive bathroom bill passed in the Massachusetts House that the Republican governor says he'll sign.

Conservative rabbis have officially affirmed that trans people are to be included in the Jewish community.

And finally, two trans women have won their primaries in major U.S. elections. The women, oddly both named Misty, are running for federal congressional seats - Misty K. Snow for the Senate and Misty Plowright for the House of Representatives.

More! More! More trans women in congress! More pro-trans bathroom bills! More religious support of trans people! I demand more!
