North Carolina, once home to America’s most controversial anti-trans bathroom bill, may have its initial trans lawmakers elected in 2020.
Gray Ellis and Angela Bridgman, both Democrats, have filed for two separate state Senate seats in the Tar Heel State. They are the first transgender candidates for the legislature in state history, The News & Observer of Raleigh reports.
The electoral milestone comes just a few years after North Carolina lawmakers enacted a notorious law striking at inclusivity ordinances. And that’s no accident.
