Tessa Ganserer (* 1977) is a member of the Bundestag. She is the queer political spokeswoman for the green parliamentary group and came out as trans * at the end of 2018. Ganserer is now finally living her true gender and is the woman she always was in public every day.
In parliament, she campaigns for the rights of all queer people. But it also makes itself strong outside of parliamentary politics so that everyone can live their sexual orientation and gender affiliation freely and without fear.
As a voluntary trade unionist, Ganserer tirelessly promotes the acceptance and appreciation of sexual and gender diversity. Queer politics have gained visibility and relevance in Bavaria and far beyond thanks to Tessa Ganserer. Its declared aim is to replace the degrading and constitutionally unlawful “transsexual law” with a self-determination law.
