>Great News About Brittany Novotny And The Transgender Community

>Well, yesterday I told you about Jan Buterman, a transgendered teacher in a Canadian Catholic school district who was fired because he was transgendered [see post HERE]. Well, today there is great news about transgendered political candidate Brittany Novotny.

According to Pam’s House Blend, Brittany Novotny has been elected President of the Young Democrats Of Oklahoma.

And, yes, you read that right: O-K-L-A-H-O-M-A.

She is the first trans person to be elected president of the Young Democrats in any state. Not California. Not New York. Oklahoma.

Great news for the woman who took on armed-and-batshit-crazy homophobe Sally Kern in the Oklahoma District 84 Assembly race. Back then, Brittany Novotny didn’t want her transgender identity become the focus of her campaign, and in a district that is extremely Republican–hence Sally Kern’s ability to be elected even though she is a rabid dog of hate–Brittany Novotny pulled in 35% of the district’s votes. 

And now she continues to work hard for Oklahoma, the Democratic party, and, even without it being her focus, the transgendered community.

Congratulations Brittany.
