Diana Tourjée spent election day with Danica Roem, the first-time politician who unseated one of the most notoriously transphobic politicians in Virginia. Watch her uplifting report.
Danica Roem made history on November 7, becoming the first transgender person to be elected and seated to a state legislature. VICE had exclusive access to Roem in the final hours of her campaign.

Roem's success in local politics has made a national impact, setting the stage for other first-time candidates and transgender people to run for—and win—elections across the country.
