“Inside Danica Roem’s Historic Campaign as a Transgender Woman in Trump’s America” - Cosmopolitan

“The Democratic candidate for Virginia’s 13th district isn’t running to rebuke Donald Trump. But given his anti-trans agenda, her victory would be that much sweeter.”

“Gender Nonbinary In The Age Of Trump” - The Huffington Post

“Like many of you, I was raised to treat everyone as I want to be treated ― including those who may seem different. We never know what someone else is going through until we have been in their shoes.
