Everyone's eyes are on 2020, but there is no shortage of elections happening this year. One of the LGBTQ people running for office is Henry Sias, who, if elected in May, would become the first trans man elected as a judge.

Sias, a 42-year-old criminal defense and civil rights attorney, cofounded a "nonprofit that has provided thousands of free expungements for low-income Philadelphians," according to the LGBTQ Victory Fund, which has endorsed him for the Philadelphia Court of Common Pleas. In his career, which includes clerking for two members of the state Supreme Court, Sias has focused on fighting discrimination in employment and housing. We caught up with Sias as he works to convince his fellow Philadelphians that he should be the first trans man elected to the bench.
