Enza Anderson is a journalist and former social columnist for one of the country's highest-circulated newspapers. She's run several political campaigns, once finishing third in Toronto's mayoralty race.
As an openly transgendered Canadian, Enza has been active in her community, working for diversity and tolerance -- and a sense of humour and graciousness.
If the gay community gets all righteous over yearning for the approval of this one fellow citizen, then more urgent issues are suffering. We need to get on with the wonderful work of proudly remaining open and inclusive to all.
