While major American corporations that claim to support addressing the climate crisis back titanic lobbying campaigns to undermine potentially the biggest legislative opportunity to meaningfully address it in at least a decade, hot bisexuals are mounting their own campaign to push Arizona Sen. Kyrsten Sinema to support the bill, Teen Vogue reports.
Sinema, the country’s first openly bisexual senator, inspired activists like Bets Ericksen, a member of the Sunrise Movement’s national organizing team, when she ran in 2018. Sinema’s obstinance on legislation like the Build Back Better Act, however, spurred Ericksen and Sunrise to call out Sinema for using her identity for political gain, but “not actually standing up for the things that would make our lives better.”
The Sunrise organizing effort called on “girls, gays, and theys [to] cuff your jeans, grab your iced coffee, take your SSRI” and phonebank to “let Sinema know that representation isn’t colorful wigs and great eyeliner. Queers want it all – good jobs, investments in infrastructure, citizenship for all, and a chance to SURVIVE.”
