    Sarah McBride Makes History as First Trans Convention Speaker

    Human Rights Campaign national spokeswoman Sarah McBride made history on Thursday by becoming the first transgender person to speak at a major political convention. For her speech, in which she officially endorsed Hillary Clinton for president, McBride recalled her own LGBT history—from coming out while in college to interning at the White House to helping her home state of Delaware pass anti-discrimination protections for trans individuals. “Despite our progress, so much work remains,” she cautioned. “Will we be a nation where there is only one way to love, only one way to look, and only one way to live? Or will we be a nation where everyone has the freedom to live openly and equally, a nation that is stronger together?” The 25-year-old activist declared that a President Clinton would work to advance LGBT equality and to “end the HIV/AIDS epidemic once and for all.”
