Trans and gay citizens do not have many friends in the US government; however, Tammy Baldwin is in the friendly minority.
Baldwin has been a Democratic Wisconsin Congresswoman for ten years, and she was the first openly gay person who ran as so, instead of coming out while in office. And since she has been elected, Baldwin has followed two passions: universal healthcare and protection for gay and transpeople. She is pushing to extend partner benefits to federal workers, and she previously pushed to include trans workers in a legislation to protect them from discrimination in the workplace.
They were not included, but Baldwin swore, ""You are not forgotten. And our job will not be finished until you, too, share fully in the American dream."
