First Non-Binary Person Runs for US Senate

31-year-old Bre Kidman has become the first openly non-binary person to run for the US Senate, reports the Huffington Post.


Kidman is a lawyer from Providence and has announced their campaign to represent Maine in the Senate.


Kidman says they were motivated into action by the confirmation of Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court.


“I felt called to do everything I could to stand up to a system where it looks to me as though fascism is rising in the United States,” Kidman said.


“I had this very strong feeling that I have do everything I can do to stop that.”


“I’m a millennial. I’ve never run for office. I hate wearing blazers. I drive a dented 10-year-old subcompact with a missing hubcap,” Kidman adds on their website. “I’m a pierced, tattooed, rainbow-haired plus-sized burlesque performer who buys most of their fast fashion wardrobe on clearance.


“Maine deserves more than a politician.”
