Make David the lead in Druck season 5 for more trans representation!

Druck, the German remake of the Norwegian webserie SKAM, follows the life of teenagers in their daily lives in Germany. The main character of the third season is Matteo. In this season David Schreibner, Matteos cute boyfriend who happens to be transgender, appears. David has already proven to be great representation for the LGBTQIA+ community, and will defenately help more people if his character was explored in an entire season for himself. The Druck fandom understands that all the remakes of the original SKAM have to be finnished first, therefore it would not be possible to give him the 4th season, but it would be great for Druck to go on with the series and make season 5 about David. So please sign this petition give David his own season, to give transgender people more representation.   Making David the main character will be more LGBTQIA+ representation: (finally some representation that is actually good) Transgender representation -> There is barly any transgender representation in movies and tv series, and if there happenes to be some this is often done poorly. DRUCK actually managed to do it right by casting an actor that is actually transgender (he is amazing btw you should check him out on twitter). This representation is important because it will help transgender people relate to see the struggles they go through everyday. If you want to know more about the problem of the current transgender representation (the things druck actually managed to fix/avoid) then here is a video I found randomly for you to check out. Gay representation -> David being the main character will cause some scenes to be between he and his boyfriend Matteo (the main character from season 3), this will automatically be LGBTQIA+ representation which is always great.    Listed underneath are a few things you can do to help achieve this goal: Sign this petition Share this petition everywhere with everyone <- this will really help!  Send this petition to the creators of DRUCK   Thank you so much for signing and helping, you will help a lot of people with this!

Petition to Massachusetts House Committee on Ways and Means, Aaron Michlewitz, Elizabeth A. Malia, Denise C. Garlick, John Barrett, III

Allow a gender "X" on Massachusetts drivers' licenses

Massachusetts recently voted on a bill that would allow the option of selecting an "X" in place of "M" or "F" on a drivers license. This bill was passed by the Massachusetts Senate, but was denied in the House because Representative James J. Lyons, Jr. of Essex added 25 amendments to it, each of which would add a different option for gender in addition to “X” – such as “cisgender female,” “neutrois” or “androgyne,” all of which refer to various permutations of gender. The bill is now sitting in the Massachusetts House of Ways and Means without a sponsor to reintroduce it. Eleven other US states already have laws in place allowing the option of a gender "X" on drivers' licenses. Massachusetts, being one of the more liberal states in the country, has already voted to uphold laws defending the right to use the public bathroom which most closely matches one's gender identity, and it recently became the sixteenth state to ban forced conversion therapy for LGBTQ+ minors. Approving this law would be yet another step in the right direction for Massachusetts, and would prove to LGBTQ+ citizens that they are cared about and valued as members of the community. Representatives Aaron Michlewitz (House Ways and Means Chair), Denise C. Garlick (House Ways and Means Vice Chair), Elizabeth A. Malia (House Ways and Means Assistant Vice Chair), and John Barrett, III have all previously sponsored or co-sponsored bills relating to the LGBTQ+ community. Now, Bill S.2213 has been sent to the exact committee that all three of the aforementioned representatives are part of. If anyone can bring this bill back to the floor by sponsoring it, it would be one of them, so join me in asking these representatives to represent what the people of Massachusetts want!
