Unpacking the 2022 Election

Episode Description

As the dust settles on the 2022 midterm elections, Imara takes a closer look at what the results mean for trans issues and candidates. She talks with award-winning freelance journalist Katelyn Burns about how anti-trans strategies failed Republicans at the ballot box and why trans candidates are succeeding in red states. The pair also look to the future of shifting opinions on gender identity at the polls and what lessons both political parties might learn from this election season.
