That evening, the White House lit up in rainbow colors to celebrate this critical step forward in our nation’s long struggle for equality. And while the struggle is far from over, in that summer of 2015, it felt like anything was possible.  On today’s episode of Girlboss Radio, we hear from someone else who broke barriers in the summer of 2015 when she became the first openly transgender person to serve as a White House staff member.  Raffi Freedman-Gurspan is one of those rare, truly courageous people—someone who comes from a long line of activists and who’s been an advocate for equality since joining the high school cheerleading team.  She’s paved paths for others to follow, and in this episode, we hear how her advocacy will continue to shape our future.
