Jen Colletta has a story for PGN 

History could be made in Philadelphia this spring.

Henry Sias is seeking a judgeship on the Court of Common Pleas. If he’s successful in the May 16 primary election, and later the general election, Sias would be the first transgender man to be elected judge in the nation.

“There are no trans guys in any judgeship in the United States,” Sias said. “I’d be the first trans man to take the bench if I won so it’s exciting.”
