Danica Roem has just marked the history by winning the Democratic primary for the Virginia House of Delegates’ 13th District. She thus becomes the first trans candidate who has won a legislative primary in this state.

She beat three Democratic candidates and will soon face the Republican Bob Marshall, also known as "Bigot Bob" for his extremely anti-LGBTQ positions.

If ever Danica wins this election, she would become Virginia's first trans state lawmaker. We wish her good luck!
