tolerance in unexpected places

Geraldine Roman is a smart and dignified lady who just happens to be transgender. Elected in a very conservative country, she saw rural people not particularly versed in gender issues elect her and when you see her speak you will see why. They must have just seen the person and nothing else.

If you watch nothing else make it the first 7 minutes which contains her speech touching on tolerance of diversity which is something the world needs more of.

  1. She is marvelous, thank you for making me aware of her. I also appreciated her answers in the last eight minutes. She is so poised and has such dignity.
