Wisconsin State Assembly Representative Greta Neubauer comes out

by | Sep 1, 2020 | 0 comments

In late June, shortly after her experience at Racine’s Pride events, Wisconsin State Assembly Representative Greta Neubauer shared an op-ed in Racine’s The Journal Times in which she came out as bisexual. The Representative of the 66th district spoke about the power of her platform as an elected official who can write and pass legislation to support and protect Wisconsinites from discrimination. She also wrote about the greater power she has in coming out and being a visible queer person.

Neubauer was a legislative aide to former state Representative Cory Mason and has been involved in environmental and women’s issues. She was elected in a special election in January 2018 and was reelected in November 2018. Since then she has championed legislation to eliminate the so-called “gay panic” defense and has campaigned for progressive candidates.
