Victory Fund: Thomas Robichaux

22 Apr

After emancipationofjamie wrote up The Democratic Party–Making Asses of Us? back in February, he and I chatted and vented our frustrations with queer representation in the political sphere. Given all the problems with finding mainstream politicians who consistently, authentically, and wholeheartedly advocate for LGBT rights, why don’t we instead focus on putting awesome queer figures in public office*?

This is, of course, the premise behind the Victory Fund, which raises awareness and funds for LGBT politicians around the country. Today we bring you their latest Candidate Alert: Thomas Robichaux, running for state representative in Louisiana where, if he is elected, he will be the only LGBT member of the state government.
Check out the Victory Fund’s endorsement of Robichaux and do what you can to help win us some representation in Louisiana!

**Not politicians like Roy Ashburn, duh.
