Florida’s First Transgender Delegate

The Florida LGBTA Democratic Caucus is excited to announce that history has been made!  Monica DePaul from Jacksonville has become the first openly transgender delegate elected to the Democratic National Convention from Florida and is pledged to Senator Bernie Sanders.

She was elected on May 7th as a district-level delegate from Florida’s 4th Congressional District and will be joining 29 other lesbian, gay and bisexual delegates at the convention in Philadelphia in July where the next President of the United States will be nominated.

The Caucus congratulates Monica and all of Florida’s LGBT delegates!
