The first openly transgender member of the Polish parliament may soon occupy one of the governing body’s top positions.

Anna Grodzka, 58, was elected to parliament in the 2011 general election. After her victory, Grodzka told the Associated Press that she was elected by voters who “wanted a modern Poland, a Poland open to variety, a Poland where all people would feel good regardless of their differences.”

Now, Polskie Radio reports that Grodzka may soon become one of Poland’s deputy parliament speakers.
