Rueda serves as Argentina’s Special Envoy for Sexual Orientation and Gender Identity and is the country’s first transgender politician to hold such a position.
The White House ceremony recognized “11 extraordinary women from around the world who are working to build a brighter future for all,” a State Department press release read.
The ceremony and its inclusion of Rueda drew ire and mockery across social media.
