Nov 3 2020, 7:22 pm

Sarah McBride has published a book, serves as a spokesperson for the nation’s largest LGBTQ advocacy organization Human Rights Campaign, and is now the first openly transgender state senator in US history after winning a state Senate seat in Delaware.

McBride is a graduate of Cab Calloway School of the Arts and American University and is one of the youngest Delawareans granted the Order of the First State, the state’s highest civilian honor, for her efforts advancing equality.

There are currently only four openly transgender US state legislators: Virginia state Delegate Danica Roem, Colorado state Representative Brianna Titone, and New Hampshire state representatives Lisa Bunker and Gerri Cannon.
