USA Today named Rep. Leigh Finke, a biological male who identifies as a woman, Minnesota’s “Woman of the Year” over the weekend.

“I have a future-oriented vision of what the work is, that is how I think of it. I think about what we’re doing for our children’s sake, for the next generation, for 30 years from now,” said Finke, the first transgender lawmaker in the Minnesota House.

According to USA Today’s profile, Finke has been “an activist for transgender and LGBTQ+ rights, as well as Black Lives Matter, almost her whole life.”

“Trans liberation is upward flowing, all liberation movements flow outwards. Everyone will benefit from it and it’s worth committing yourself to,” Finke said.

Finke is carrying a bill in the Minnesota House that would make the state a “refuge” for children seeking “gender-affirming” drugs and surgeries.

The first-term Democrat from St. Paul defended rioting in a speech last June and has called for abolishing the police.

Several prominent Democrats congratulated Finke on the nomination as Minnesota’s “Woman of the Year.”

“Representative [Leigh Finke] is a gift to Minnesota. Her tenacity, bravery, and leadership inspire me every day. This recognition as Woman of the Year is well-deserved,” Lt. Gov. Peggy Flanagan said.

On International Women’s Day, the White House presented a “Woman of Courage Award” to a biological male from Argentina.
