It's a great day for equality!
Setting the precedent for Polish parliament, Anna Grodzka took her seat as a newly elected official Tuesday morning!
Anna, who went through a sex change last year, entered parliament with welcome arms by her peers. They warmly cheered her on as she walked down the assembly hall.
It is a symbolic moment, but we owe this symbolism not to me but to the people of Poland because they made their choice. They wanted a modern Poland, a Poland open to variety, a Poland where all people would feel good regardless of their differences. I cannot fail them in their expectations.
…spoken like a true politician!
Anna belongs to the third largest party in the country — the progressive Palikot's Movement.
Congratulations, girl!! We're super proud of you! And of Poland!!
