Ashlee Marie Preston, who called out Caitlyn Jenner’s continued support of president Donald Trump, will be running for political office in California.
The transgender activist told Jenner she was a “fraud” at last August’s Trans Chorus of Los Angeles performance of The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars, according to Gay Star News. Preston confronted Jenner about her support of Trump, who previously attempted to ban transgender service members from joining the U.S. military.
“As someone directly impacted by the issues that often diminish the quality of life, I have an acute understanding of which policies must be put into play in order to move progress forward for the constituents of the 54th district and beyond,” Preston said. “I believe in prioritizing people over politics.”
Preston announced her candidacy after Sebastian Ridley-Thomas resigned on December 30 due to health issues, according to GayStarNews.
