Northern Ireland will have its first openly transgender politician if Ellen Murray, a 22-year-old youth worker from West Belfast, wins a seat in elections to the British province's assembly in May."I would love to see really strong protective measures and rights-based law being introduced in Northern Ireland to facilitate young LGBT people," said Murray, whose social justice work has been focusing on young LGBT people.She said she hoped that having an openly transgender person in the assembly would help those 'many' members who oppose equal rights to better understand and address the problems facing LGBT people.
