Yet, due to what many say is Republican gerrymandering, the GOP has controlled both the Senate and House of Representatives in the Pennsylvania General Assembly since 2011. Democratic Gov. Tom Wolf has been a champion of queer Pennsylvanians, but his term is ending. If the Republican candidate Doug Mastriano, a far-right opponent of gay rights, defeats Democrat Josh Shapiro in November, the outlook is grim for many queer Pennsylvanians.
