Danica Roem became the first openly transgender person seated in a state legislature after defeating her Republican opponent Bob Marshall for a seat in the Virginia House of Delegates.

Some Republicans have theorized that Roem’s win was due to identity politics but in a lengthy Twitter thread Roem argued that it was a strong platform that led to her victory.

Roem’s historical win caught the attention of Demi Lovato who brought Roem as her date to the American Music Awards.
