McCreath Says Trans Candidate on Major NL Party Ticket good news towards Trans Equality

Wow, so it looks like the NL Liberals are going to put at least one openly-trans person on the ballot for our next provincial election. This appears to be the first time a major party in NL has done such a bold thing.

For what it's worth, I don't support the NL Liberals and I don't support this candidate. (But those are two other stories for two different days)

However, politics aside, I recognize that a major political party putting a trans person on a ballot is a very huge statement. Let' hope this milestone will act as another step up for trans people as a whole, in terms of the progress for all of us being recognized as equals and us being taken seriously and us being given a chance to partake and contribute to the political process and society as a whole.

So, for this, I celebrate today! #nlpoli
