Trans Woman Challenges Gay Incumbent In Maryland

One day, perhaps, this won't rate as news:  a transgender woman challenging a gay incumbent in a primary.

I'm not holding my breath.  I'm just glad that at least in Montgomery County, Maryland, they have an incumbent who has fought for the community and a challenger who, perhaps, can do even more.

Dana Beyer, the Executive Director of Gender Rights Maryland, is looking to win the nomination for a state senate seat currently held by Richard Madaleno.  They are Democrats and, since no Republican is running, the winner will most likely end up in the state's legislative body.

Unfortunately, at least one thing is depressingly predictable:  the stupid and hateful comments to an article announcing the race.
