The Democratic National Convention is set to make history as it will feature its first-ever “transgender” speaker this Thursday. Tim McBride, who goes by the name Sarah will take the stage in support of Hillary Clinton this week. Tim McBride serves as the national press secretary for the Human Rights Campaign and is also a volunteer on the steering committee of Trans United for Hillary.
Excerpt from the Christian News Network:
McBride explained in 2012 that he felt he was transgender as a child, but buried his struggle with his identity in his love for politics. “I told myself that if I could make ‘Tim’ worthwhile for other people by changing the world, that being ‘Tim’ would have been worthwhile,” he wrote in an open letter published by the outlets The Eagle and Delaware Liberal. “I also thought that, on a superficial level, the perks and privileges of being an elected official would bring me some level of happiness that I couldn’t otherwise achieve.”
