It is a historic moment in the life of the transgender community as trans woman Sarah McBride gave a speech at the Democratic National Convention.
She said (about her late husband):
‘Knowing Andy left me profoundly changed. More than anything, 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.
She added: ‘Hillary Clinton understands the urgency of our fight. She will work with us to pass the Equality Act, to combat violence against transgender women of color, and to end the HIV and AIDS epidemic once and for all!’
