In what is the first time anyone has ever said “transgender Navy SEAL is running for Congress,” transgender former SEAL Kirstin Beck has decided to run for Congress. Beck will be attempting to unseat longtime Democrat leader Steny Hoyer (D-MD) from Congress. Hoyer is the #2 ranked Democrat in Congress and serves as the House minority Whip under Democrat leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA).
The first SEAL to come out as transgendered may also become the first transgendered member of Congress.
Former U.S. Navy SEAL Kirstin Beck, who transitioned from male to female in 2013, has announced that she’s running in the Maryland primaries to unseat U.S. Democratic Rep. Steny Hoyer, the longest-serving Maryland representative and House Minority Whip.
