    Dear Pride Karen: Your Racism Won’t Win Here

    By Carolyn Wysinger–

    Happy September!

    We are about 6 weeks away from Election Day 2022 (November 8), and as many of you know, I am currently running for office! But I am not the only LGBTQ woman doing so. Across the Bay Area, there are many LGBTQ women stepping up to support our communities by running for elected office.

    Since my brain is deep in campaign fog, it makes better use of my space here to list who those women are and how you can find them to support their campaigns! Remember, the best ways you can help are to donate or sign up to canvass in their districts. And to show you how much I care, I won’t even list myself first 🙂
