In the US midterm elections, lesbians and trans people come out on top.
Early results in the US midterm elections welcomed diversity, with the first openly lesbian governor and the first Generation Z member-elect of Congress among them.

According to TV networks, Massachusetts voters chose Democrat Maura Healey to serve as the country's first openly lesbian governor.

To oust the Republicans from power, the 51-year-old overcame Geoff Diehl, who had received the backing of former president Donald Trump.

She told her cheering fans that she was "proud" of her historic triumph and that it served as a reminder that "you can be anything you want to be, to every little girl and every LGBTQ person out there."

Healey will also become the first female governor of Massachusetts. For the first time ever, she and her running companion Kim Driscoll will lead a state as governor and lieutenant governor.

Maxwell Frost, a Democrat from Florida, gained a seat in the US House of Representatives and became the first person from Generation Z to be elected to Congress.

The 25-year-old won over Calvin Wimbish, a Republican, in a strongly Democratic area.

The African-American wrote, "We created history for Floridians, for Gen Z, and for everyone who believes we deserve a better future."

Karoline Leavitt, 25, a member of the Gen Z generation who is running for Congress in New Hampshire, comes from the opposing political party and is in a more heated race.

The Washington Post stated that New Hampshire made history by electing a transgender man to a state legislature.

James Roesener, a Democrat, was one of a record number of transgender candidates this year.

Since a number of transgender women have already been elected to office, Roesener won't be the first openly trans lawmaker.

Republican Katie Britt was chosen by Alabama voters to become the state's first female senator, while Arkansas's first female governor, Sarah Huckabee Sanders, was expected to win the governor's race there.

Wes Moore, a Democrat, was elected as Maryland's first Black governor, while Markwayne Mullin will be Oklahoma's first Native American senator in over a century.
