Transgender Woman Sarah McBride Becomes First to Address a National Convention at DNC

Sarah McBride spoke to the Democratic National Convention tonight.

"Four years ago, I came out as transgender while serving as student body president in college. At the time, I was scared. I worried that my dreams and my identity were mutually exclusive," she said.

McBride also told how she fell in love with a transgender man named Andy, who later was diagnosed with terminal cancer.

"We married in 2014, and just five days after our wedding, he passed away," she said, but noted that "more than anything else, his passing taught me that every day matters when it comes to building a world where every person can live their life to the fullest."

McBride endorsed Clinton during the speech, saying she would be an advocate for the transgender community.
