Start writing a post

The Presidential election of 2020 featured President Donald Trump against former Vice President Joe Biden. Regardless of who wins the election on November 3, for many people, there are implications based on whoever the new sitting president will be.

Odyssey wants to know how you think the next president will affect you and your community. Here's a simple template to follow to write an identity piece based on the presidential election:


As A [Insert Identity Here], The Election Of [Trump/Biden] Means _______ For Me


As A [Insert Identity Here] Trump's Reelection Is Terrifying/Great Because _______


As A [Insert Identity Here], Having [Trump/Biden] In Office Is _______


Having Joe Biden As Our Next President Means I, A [Insert Identity Here], [Insert Opinion]

Cover Image:

A picture of yourself with a ballot, at the polling station, people within your specific community and identity group, or just a personal picture will work well here.

Introduction and Body Paragraphs:

For your introduction, talk about yourself, the group, or identity you represent, a bit about your experience under the Trump administration since he was elected president in 2016. If you have any personal stories, this is a great place to tell those in a short and concise way.

Then, talk about the newly elected president and start talking about what their election means to you, your experience, and others who are in your identity group.

You can answer some of these questions too:

  1. How do you feel about the newly elected president?
  2. Are you excited, scared, nervous, elated, or sad about the election?
  3. What have your experiences been like under the Trump administration?
  4. How do you think your experiences might change over the course of the next 4 years?
  5. Is the election a big deal to people in your identity group? Why?
Finally, you can finish off your piece with a wrap-up paragraph talking about some of your hopes for the next four years under the president-elect or any other final thoughts on the election and what the implications are.

Victory For LGBTQ Americans As The US Gains 6 New LGBTQ Government Representatives

Regardless of who is president, let's celebrate these huge victories for LGBTQ representation in various states' governments.


The presidential election was extremely stressful for us all, causing us to worry about who will win and what it means for the future. For many of us, this can mean the difference between life and death, especially for BIPOC and members of the LGBTQ communities who are at the mercy of homophobes and racists — many of whom are proud supporters of the color orange.

Instead of worrying whether I'll be sent to a conversion camp next year or not, I'd rather celebrate the much bigger and more important wins. There have been six representatives added to state governments this past election who are all a part of the LGBTQ community.

Scotland Is The First Country To Make Menstrual Products Free, And The Rest Of The World Should Follow

The idea that they are a "luxury" that should be paid for (and taxed) is absurd because nobody chooses to have a period.


Scotland recently became the first country in the world to make menstrual products free to anyone that needs them, and the rest of the world needs to follow their lead. It is honestly sad that in the year 2020, there is only one nation that has passed a law to make period products free. The idea that they are a "luxury" that should be paid for (and taxed) is absurd because nobody chooses to have a period. It should not be seen as a luxury to have access to products that are a basic necessity.

Candace Owens' Backwards Ideas Are Causing Damage, Not Harry Styles Wearing A Dress

Candace Owens thinks men wearing dresses are damaging to civilization, but it's her ideas that are the problem.


Androgyny is something that has always been part of culture. Since the beginning of time, gender expression has always been varied and expansive. However, as time went on, society forced particular roles onto certain genders. These sorts of gender roles have caused many to rebel against them, including artists and rock stars. Harry Styles seems to be the next one in line to rebel in this way.
