Default GLBTQ news tidbits

I feel that a lot of this news doesn't get covered widely, and that it is important to remember that there is a lot of progress happening in the world, despite how far there is to go in many places. Feel free to add your own pointers to news others might enjoy seeing.

First election of an openly trans state legislature member

I was pretty excited to see Danica Roem's win in Virginia

Not going to get into the politics of it all, but go look it up if you are interested and hadn't heard.

Being gay getting better in rural UK?

From the Economist:

"A study of British pornography-viewing habits makes it possible to see where gay people live. Data from listings websites reveal where events catering specifically to gay or bisexual people take place. Put together, these datasets suggest that lots of gay people live in rural areas of Britain without much sign of their presence. But thanks to a reduction in bigotry and the rise of specialist dating apps, they are increasingly visible"
