Transgender woman poised for seat in Poland's new parliament

Quote:
After gaining 19,451 votes in the Kraków II electoral district,
Anna Grodzka, top of Palikot's Movement's party list in that area,
has won a place in Poland's lower house of parliament, the Sejm.

This will make Ms Grodzka, founder and president of the NGO Trans-Fuzja,
Poland’s first openly transgender parliamentarian.
She says it will also make her the world's only transsexual MP.

Ms Grodzka, who completed her sex change last year, had been politically
active with the Democratic Left Alliance (SLD) for a number of years
but became disenchanted with the party.

She then accepted an offer from the founder and leader of Palikot's
Movement (RP), Janusz Palikot, to join that party.

"Today, Poland is changing. I am the proof along with Robert Biedron,
a homosexual and the head of an anti-homophobia campaign who ran for
office in Gdynia," Ms Grodzka told the AFP.

Many political experts have said that RP's surprisingly strong
performance is proof that there have been some deep changes in
Polish society over the past few years. RP is anti-clerical and supports
gay rights, abortion and the legalization of soft drugs.

You should ring them up and tell them that they are wrong.

The first ever Transgendered/Transexual Member of Parliament was from New Zealand, Her name is Georgina Beyer, and I've met her once , a wonderful lady.

That and she was a former Prostitute, Drag Queen.
