Gray Ellis wants to be the first trans man to be a state senator in the U.S.

As possibly the first transgender man to run for political office in North Carolina, Gray Ellis knows that in his race for state senate, his identity means something.

I understand what its like to feel like an outsider, said Ellis in his campaign video, to question whether Ill be accepted for simply being who I am. Im a trans man Im one of the voices not heard in North Carolina politics. Its imperative to have a voice of reason and knowledge representing you, a voice who understands how it feels to be marginalized.

For Ellis, who is running in North Carolinas 20th district, being out and open is crucial.

If we dont come out and let people know, he told LGBTQ Nation, then peoples hearts and minds are not likely to change.
