October is a critical month for the LGBTQ community. Not only is it our history month, but it also includes National Coming Out Day. The personal power of coming out and the social power of our rich history are the sources of our political power. We can use our political power in October in Tennessee. Through October 9 we can register to vote at https://proudvoter.org/tep/ and then early voting across the state begins October 17.
