Sadie, 11-year-old trans girl, asks President Obama why he didn't mention trans people at inaugural

13sadie's essayFolks are talking about Sadie, an 11-year-old trans girl who asked why President Barack Obama didn't mention transgender people during his inaugural address this week.

"Sadie was so proud of President Obama for including the gay community in his inaugural address on Monday; however, she felt like the trans community wasn't included," Sage, Sadie's mother, told The Huffington Post on Tuesday. "That inspired her to write her own 'speech.'"

Below, Noah Michelson of HuffPost Gay Voices discusses Sadie with Marc Lamont Hill of HuffPost Live.
