Earlier this week, Betsey Driver became the first openly intersex American to be elected to public office in a beautiful win for not just for her, but for all intersex people! Driver, who founded the online intersex support group Bodies Like Ours in 2001, was elected to the city council of the Borough of Flemington, NJ.
She becomes the second openly intersex person in the world to be elected to public office. Preceding her is Tony Briffa, who was elected mayor of Hobson’s Bay, in Victoria, Australia, in 2011.
We thank Driver for all her hard work, and congratulate her on this historic win!
