Democratic representative and trans trailblazer Zooey Zephyr has proposed to her girlfriend, the independent journalist and LGBTQ+ activist Erin Reed. Zooey shared a Tweet expressing her happiness saying, “I have found my future, my family, and my forever.” The past few weeks have been difficult for Zooey, after she was banned from the floor of the state’s House of Representatives on 26 April, for speaking out against a bill that would ban gender-affirming care for trans youth. Erin Reed told PinkNews that the couple had been side by side through it all for the last several months. They are thrilled to be a source of happiness for the community and Zooey has made her the luckiest woman alive.
