“Yes. People are more open-minded to that sort of thing. We have a lesbian U.S. senator in this country. If people can accept a lesbian, why not accept a trans person? We’re on the right path. It might take 10 years. But we’re getting there.”

"Yes. But not in Pennsyl-vania. It's more likely in states like Massachu-setts, Califor-nia and Oregon. I know many trans people. I go to school with several trans students. I'd like to see a trans U.S. senator become a reality."

“It depends on the state. It would be possible in California, New York and Penn-sylvania. They’re all basically liberal enough. And people may be more inclined to vote for a trans candidate to retaliate against Trump. Ironically, having Trump as president might actually help facilitate the election of a trans U.S. senator.”

“Yes, it’s possible. The world is changing and minds are opening. I would like to see the trans community represented on all levels of government — including in the U.S. Senate. I’m very pro-trans.”
