Sarah McBride Becomes First Transgender State Senator In US

Washington: Amidst the anxiety over US election results, Sarah McBride became the first trans person to get elected to the state senate in the history of the country on Wednesday.

This makes McBride the highest-ranking openly trans politician, winning 86% of absentee ballot voters.

Delaware’s McBride previously worked on Joe Biden’s late son Beau Biden’s campaign, collaborating with him on the Gender Identity Nondiscrimination Act.

She is also the first openly trans person to work under Barack Obama in the White House.

Annise Parker of the LGBTQ Victory Fund called Sarah’s achievement a “powerful testament to the growing influence of transgender leaders.”

The 30-year-old has built her career working roles at the Human Rights Campaign and Equality Delaware, prioritising healthcare affordability, paid family and medical leave, and criminal justice reform.
