“All in for Kim” –

Kim Coco Iwamoto’s response she posted on FaceBook (see below) to the Honolulu Star-Advertiser article announcing my decision to step down as Vice-Chair of the Democratic Party of Hawaii and my endorsement of her campaign to the State House of Representatives, brought a tear to my eye and warmth to my heart.

“This is one of the most moving endorsements I have ever received. Thank you Gary Hooser for stepping down in order to raise me up. I don’t mean to be reductive about either of our unique lived experiences, BUT DAMN, Gary!: You might be the first middle-aged, heterosexual, white man to give up such power and access to support a middle-aged, bisexual, transwoman of color to step up to power!#FeministRecoveryPlan #RaisingUpWomen #transgender #PostTimesUp #AlliesInAction #ButDamnGary”
