Q&A with Val Pennington, Candidate for Mayor of Bellevue Borough

Val Pennington

[A] friend from my elementary school days. The daily cruelty and open hostility they were subjected to, coupled with my inability to act – out of fear of similar treatment, still haunts me, and inspires me to craft a world where bigotry is abnormal and not tolerated. I want children to feel a sense of […]

Political Q&A With Candidates Who Don’t Follow Through With the LGBTQIA+ Community

For several years, I have published a Q&A series with candidates for all sorts of offices.

Q&A with Laura Pollanen, Candidate for Bellevue Borough Council

  LGBTQ folx are everywhere, and we’re not going away. By taking office, we can push not just legislation to ensure our legal rights are protected, but also push for normalizing what are seen as LGBTQ+ issues until your LGBTQ+ identity is as unremarkable as your hair color. I want to make it clear that […]
