As Native American Heritage Month comes to a close, we wanted to honor some of the many LGBTQ and two-spirit Native American people working every day to make the world a better place. Here are five LGBTQ and two-spirit Native American people you should know about. Rep. Sharice Davids (D-KS) made history in 2018 as the first out LGBTQ person elected to Congress from Kansas, and as one of the first Native American women elected to Congress. In 2020, she was reelected for a second term. In 2020, Geo Neptune became the first trans, nonbinary, two-spirit elected official in the state of Maine when they were elected to the Indian Township School Board.
