LGBTQ candidates won U.S. elections in droves. Their momentum crosses borders.

Sarah McBride easily won her state Senate race in Delaware earlier this month. The election was the culmination of a long and hard-fought battle, and with the win, McBride, a Democrat, became the first openly transgender person ever elected to a U.S. state Senate.

“I didn’t run to make history or to make headlines,” McBride told People magazine. “I ran to make a difference.”

Still, the news garnered international attention. McBride, a fierce LGBTQ advocate who interned at the White House during the Obama years, first became a household name in 2016 — she was the first openly transgender person to speak at the Democratic National Convention.
