On Episode 285 of the Mama Bear Dares Podcast, Leslie and Tesi have the privilege of sitting down with Rosemary Ketchum, a former community organizer in Wheeling, West Virginia, and now, the state’s first out transgender elected official. Rosemary talks about her election, the importance of voting (she won her seat by 15 votes!), and busting down doors to get a seat at the table. She’s also the associate director of the city’s local drop-in center for the National Alliance for Mental Illness. A fierce advocate for the marginalized, Rosemary’s story is wonderful, her wisdom is never-ending, and the conversation is full of energy and passion.
