Kim Petras made history by becoming the first transgender woman to win a Grammy for Best Pop/Group performance. She was awarded the trophy by German singer and non-binary artist Sam Smith, who let her accept it as a tribute to her achievement. Kim gave an emotional speech, thanking Madonna and the late artist SOPHIE for their inspiration. She also paid tribute to her mother for supporting her and said she wants to be a role model for transgender youth. The win was a big moment for Kim, who became the youngest person to have gender reassignment surgery at 16 and has been a vocal advocate for transgender visibility.
