The Real First Ladies. @ Vice as to how and why red is turning into blue. With Trans Gender Together we stand.
The real First Ladies behind the Victors
Channeling Kindness, Tolerance and Love.
Race Relations and sexual identity issues during the Obama Biden Years saw a dramatic shift. As did, many other cultural issues but who to keep the torch burning with the good years over.
Apparently, a fuse of the new “First Ladies “ and the real views real time news Vice Media to fuel the fire.
For once it would appear instead of following the money trail to the top we are able to attribute grassroots efforts and quiet success using her Twitter Account and various charitable outlets, commercials and image for something Positive. Kindness and Tolerance.
By not giving in to the Vitriol typical "why hate trump" that we’ve fallen into that we’ve Fallon into - the over sentiment about his child and health care is I’m sorry corny. No-one wants babies to die - this is a battle over conception about good old fashioned crony capitalism, greed money and the Value of Life which will go on forever. What we need is smart strategic vision, leadership and networking.
Constant mockery say 12 skits of Trump Impressions in a row by SNL and Oscar speeches by Merryl Streep are ok but this old war is just what they want and we continue to play into the gold
Whatever happen to subtlety . #Joanne happened at a time when we needed a mother figure especially with Hilary, Michelle and Ellen behind the scene who to step up to the plate in terms of strategy.
Through Symbolism, connectedness and openness about past pains like sexual abuse awareness with Joe Biden and cameo’s when they count- unlike social media and other outlets phony news needs to know 24/7. Impressions do count and negative viral spreads faster while our subconscious draws relationships with people we can relate too . Silence can be Golden .
Is it any coincidence ?
And the winners were:
Tyler Titus for Erie City School Board
Elect Lisa Middleton Palm Springs City Council 2017
Paul J. Richards
MoreIt was a big night for Democrats on Tuesday, with wins in key races in what party officials declare is a repudiation of President Trump’s first year in office. It was also a historic night for transgender and LGBT candidates around the country. Why?
In Virginia, Danica Roem became the first openly transgender person to be elected to the state legislature. Roem, a 33-year-old Democrat, former journalist and current member of a thrash metal band, defeated 73-year-old Bob Marshall, a 26-year incumbent, social conservative and author of a proposed “bathroom bill” prohibiting trans people from using the bathroom of their choice. Marshall, who once referred to himself as Virginia’s “chief homophobe,” had refused to publicly debate Roem during the campaign.
Danica Roem rejoices after polls closed in Gainesville, Va., on Tuesday.
Roem is believed to be just the second openly transgender legislator to be elected in the country. In 2012, Stacie Laughton was elected to the New Hampshire House — the first openly transgender person elected to a state legislature in the United States. (Althea Garrison was elected to the Massachusetts House as a Republican in 1992, but it wasn’t until after the election that her birth as a male was reported. She served one term.)
Aisha C. Moodie-Mills, whose Gay & Lesbian Victory Fund raised more than $200,000 for Roem’s candidacy, said in a statement that “2017 will be remembered as the year of the trans candidate — and Danica’s heroic run for office the centerpiece of that national movement.”
“It’s historic,” Democratic House Caucus Chair Charniele Herring told the Associated Press. “It sends a message to politicians everywhere that the politics of bigotry is over.”
MoreIn Pennsylvania, Tyler Titus became the first openly transgender person elected to office in the state. The 33-year-old father of two grabbed one of four open seats on the Erie School Board on Tuesday.
“Tyler Titus shattered a lavender ceiling in Pennsylvania today, and his victory will resonate well beyond state boundaries,” the Victory Fund said in a statement. “Trans people remain severely underrepresented in our politics and government, and now more than ever we need trans voices like Tyler’s in the halls of power.”
MoreIn Minnesota, Andrea Jenkins became the first transgender person of color to be elected to any office in the United States. Jenkins got 73 percent of the vote, walloping her three opponents to be elected to the Minneapolis City Council.
Another trans candidate, Phillipe Cunningham, also ran for a seat on Minneapolis’s City Council, but the results of that race have yet to be determined.
MoreIn California, Lisa Middleton became the first transgender person elected to a nonjudicial office in the state, winning a seat on the Palm Springs City Council.
“It’s all because of all of you that we are here tonight,” Middleton told supporters after her win, calling it a “historic victory for our city and for our state.”
Jenny Durkan addresses supporters at an election night party Tuesday in Seattle.
MoreIn Washington state, Jenny Durkan was elected to become Seattle’s first openly lesbian mayor — and the Emerald City’s first female mayor since the 1920s. Durkan, a former federal prosecutor, defeated fellow female Democrat Cary Moon in the nonpartisan mayoral race. Both women were vying for the seat vacated by former Seattle Mayor Ed Murray, a gay man who resigned in September after being accused by five men of sexual abuse. Murray has denied the charges.
“Tonight was about fighting back,” Moodie-Mills said. “But it is also an undeniably historic night for the LGBTQ movement and for trans equality, having moved the needle on what is possible for a trans leader who aspires to run for office and make positive change.”
As well, Notorious for their taboo and speaking in real time streams Vice has a devoted LGBTQ section in the spirit of the Onion more satirical prose ; Vice views take this issues to heart with Smith being so Hands on appearing in episodes with featured with Barack Obama in Prison (Surprisingly with no qualms about perception). In his final term Obama did something no other president has done and that is show empathy and kindness to Prisoners who are stuck in a system that doesn’t favor minority with laws like Minimum Mandatory Sentencing.
Where else to turn for reliable views and tact these days in the era of Entertainment and Infotainment? Who do we look to and why does that Decision Matter. For Good Reasons apparently.
