New Hampshire elects nation’s first transgender lawmaker

Voters in New Hampshire have become the first to elect a transgender person to their state legislature.

Stacie Laughton, 28, won a seat in the New Hampshire House of Representatives in Tuesday’s election. She is a trans woman, that is someone with a female gender identity who was assigned as male at birth.

Laughton said she hopes her victory will inspire others from the LGBT (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender) community to get more involved in mainstream politics.
