Michigan’s Homophobia-Fighting Candidates: Nessel, Whitmer and Benson Strike Epic ‘Charlie’s Angels’ Pose

Good morning, angels!

Michigan’s Trifecta of Female Badassery (Gov. Gretchen Whitmer, Attorney General Dana Nessel and Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson) struck this “Charlie’s Angels”-inspired pose at the Michigan Democratic Party 2022 State Nominating Convention over the weekend. 

Nessel shared the image on Twitter.


@DetroitConcert1 identified the trio as “Michigan’s Guardians of Democracy,” and we couldn’t agree more. 

All three officials are up for reelection this November, and it would be difficult to express how vitally important those elections are for the LGBTQ+ community. A mass of voters will be needed to stave off the dark promises being made by dangerous, deplorable Republican candidates who want to erase LGBTQ+ rights and delegitimize the community’s contributions to society. They might as well be our angels.
