ezs note:  Colorado's 2nd State Senate district - granted, it's a long way off, but if you have a strong LGBTQ credential, have a good rapport with people (whether they agree or disagree with you), and, preferably, have a spot on a city or town council, perhaps it'll be time to take away Kevin Grantham's seat in the Senate.  In case you didn't know, he went to, ahem, 'school' at Liberty University, of airhead Jerry Falwell's starting.

Yeah, that's who you've got representing you in the 2nd District.  You can do better.
