Rachel Levine- Secretary of Health

(1/2) > >>

Rachel is awesome. She taught a meditation class I took and spoke twice where I work. I also talked to her several times post Pride marches in Philly at Penn's Landing. Such an awesome choice. She is a MD and ran the trans clinic at Pittsburgh. The was chosen for Secretary of Health or PA. He life has be full of achievement and hardship. She discussed he journey and hardships. I love her !

Some media reports say Assistant Secretary of Health, which is still an important and influential position. Happy to see this.

Rachel Montgomery:
My family is beside themselves, outraged that such a person would be appointed to an important office."  My older sister described the nomination as “sheer insanity”.  That’s my family.  That’s who I have to hope would still care about me if I came out.  :)

I saw Rachel Levin'e's speech to the press, and here's a snippet from the transcript:

"I feel that I must personally respond to the multiple incidents of LGBT Q harassment and specifically transphobia directed at me that have been reported in the press. I would first like to sincerely thank Governor Wolf for his continued support and for his comments last week. The LGBT Q Community has made so much progress under Governor Wolf and his leadership during his time in office, but I want to emphasize that while these individuals may think that they are only expressing their displeasure with me, they are in fact hurting the thousands of LGBT Q Pennsylvanians who suffered directly from these current demonstrations of harassment. Your actions perpetuate the spirit of intolerance and discrimination against LGBT Q individuals and specifically transgender individuals."

What multiple incidents in the press is this person talking about?  I didn't see anything bad the press said about them?  Anyone have any links to share?
