Gender Reveal

Feb 10, 2020

Tuck speaks with Paige Kreisman (she/her), a democratic socialist running for statewide office. (See content warnings below.) Topics include:

  • Why many trans folks hate the military… but enlist at twice the rate of cis people
  • Why so many trans people are socialists
  • How “progressive” states fail at trans healthcare
  • Why the prison industrial complex is a trans issue
  • What trans people should know about running for office

Content notes: mentions of rape (13, 21), trans death (22), and death threats (13, 32).
