Trans People Who Made History In 2019

Trans visibility has made frequent news in 2019. Alex Schmider, GLAAD’s associate director said that this year historic “firsts” have played a key role in the country's progress towards equality. 

"We know trans people have been around for centuries, in all different cultures and in all different communities. It's only now that we're starting to be represented in mainstream media," Schmider told ‘CNN’. "The hope and goal for representation is for stories to reflect and represent the culture with which we live.”

Here is a list of trans people who made history in 2019.
