DeShanna will be one of the first out LGBTQ women elected to the Delaware House of Representatives!
DeShanna Neal (she/they), is a queer mother of four and community organizer. She became a public figure when her daughter Trinity expressed her desire to receive gender-confirming medical treatments as a teenager. DeShanna fought for and won the right for Trinity to become the first child in Delaware to receive gender confirmation surgery via Medicaid. Despite the controversy and criticism she has received, she stands firm in her beliefs of racial justice, accessible medical and mental healthcare, and LGBTQ+ rights, and continue to fight not only for her family but for all families in need in my community.
