Can You Be Trans and Republican?

Can a person really be transgender AND a Republican? Sure, the GOP doesn't seem like a friend to the LGBTQ community, what with their bathroom bills, fight against gay marriage and now laws trying to stop LGBTQ people from adopting children. But, what about people who feel gender dysphora and also love the Second Amendment, a flat tax, and states' rights? Are they traitors to the cause or a real part of the LGBTQ community? In this episode Kath and Faith discuss the intersection of politics and identity.
