About Episode 43

Zooey Zephyr (she/her) is the first trans woman to be elected to the Montana State Legislature, representing HD100. She shares her experience and the fight for visibility.

About Zooey

Zooey Zephyr is a progressive, bisexual trans woman, and the current state representative for Montana’s 100th House district

Zephyr has spent much of her adult life working as a public employee for the University of Montana, as well as working as a community advocate. She has worked to help university programs integrate diversity, equity, and inclusion practices into their faculty requirements, and has worked with the city of Missoula, Montana to draft human rights legislation tailored towards making justice more accessible to people who have been discriminated against.

As a representative, she fights for human rights — from voting rights to trans rights to working towards dismantling the cruelties of the prison-industrial complex. She also works to address what she sees as four of the big, interconnected areas where Montana is failing to adequately help its residents: housing inequality, health care, infrastructure, and climate change.
