Sarah was the first trans person elected a state Senator in the country!
Senator McBride is the first openly transgender state senator in American history. In the Delaware State Senate, Senator McBride serves as the chair of the Health and Social Services Committee, where she has championed health care reforms that lower costs, expand access, and improve quality. In just her first term, Senator McBride successfully passed paid family and medical leave in the First State, marking the largest expansion of Delaware’s social safety net in decades. Prior to her service in the state senate, McBride was a national leader in the fight for LGBTQ equality and served as the spokesperson for the Human Rights Campaign.
