Openly gay California State Assembly Speaker John Perez addressed the Democratic National Convention tonight and, as Jill requested, he made sure to actually say the word "transgender" instead of just lumping everything queer into the LGBT buzzword.

Sometimes it's just nice to hear your tribe acknowledged by name, eh?
