You Inspire Me: Laura Calvo

The Stonewall Democrats of Oregon just announced in a press release the election of Laura Calvo as treasurer for the State of Oregon Democratic Party. Calvo is openly transgender and has been an advocate for the LGBT issues and a leader for the Democratic Party for many years.

This is one Latina woman that wears many hats. Prior to this election Calvo served as the treasurer of the Democratic GLBT Caucus, treasurer of the Multnomah County Democrat Party, regional director for the National Stonewall Democrats, and the secretary of the Democratic Party of Oregon's third congressional district. I'm exhausted just reading this list. But Calvo has managed to tirelessly serve and this election shows that her efforts are appreciated.

Congratulations to Calvo. I'm sure you will continue to be an example for the LGBT community and a tremendous leader for the Democratic party.
