Wisconsin State Rep. JoCasta Zamarripa is the first Latina elected to the Wisconsin legislature and one of the few bisexual legislators in the country. On #BiVisibilityDay, Rep. Zamarripa took over HRC Wisconsin's twitter account to discuss the importance of being a visible champion for the communities she represents.
2/ I made history when I became the first Latina elected to the Wisconsin legislature. I am also one of the few LGBTQ legislators in the state. It’s an honor to be a vocal advocate for my communities. - @repjocasta #HispanicHeritageMonth #BiVisibilityDay https://t.co/Bixn2KZOA1— HRC in Wisconsin (@HRC_WI) September 23, 2019
4/ In fact, @HRC’s new report found bi+ youth are far less likely to be open about their identities than gay and lesbian youth. I understand that reality because I lived it. - @repjocasta #BiVisibilityDay https://t.co/jlKa22Sly5— HRC in Wisconsin (@HRC_WI) September 23, 2019
6/ I fight hard to ensure all Milwaukeans know their needs are considered. As a bi woman myself, I understand bi+ people face striking health disparities — particularly bi+ trans people and people of color. - @repjocasta #BiVisibilityDay https://t.co/6LuVrEIBOp— HRC in Wisconsin (@HRC_WI) September 23, 2019
