Over the years I have posted here in Cyrsti's Condo concerning the changes which occurred with me as I transitioned from a cross dresser to a transgender woman. I can't begin to tell you how many times I never believed I would ever become a full time trans woman. Needless to say, the further I went down the Mtf gender transition path, the more diligent I became in protecting my civil rights and the more active I became in voting for those who did too. After all, it was more than my rights I was trying to protect, it was the lives of the future LGBTQ youth also.
This year, Equality Ohio has come through with a helpful scorecard which is a great guide on who to vote for. Maybe there will be one in your state too!
