Breanna Sinclairé Becomes First Trans Artist to Perform National Anthem For MLB

Via Mediaite:
A 25-year-old opera singer made history at the Oakland A’s game when she sang the national anthem. Breanna Sinclairé, the first openly transgender woman to study and graduate from the San Francisco Conservatory of Music, became the first transgender singer to perform the national anthem at a professional sporting event. This particular game, which pitted the A’s against the San Diego Padres, was on the A’s Gay Pride night at the Oakland Coliseum and a member of the LGBT community was specifically sought for the honor of performing the national anthem.
