Biden Administration Issues Proclamation Commemorating Transgender Day of Visibility
President Joe Biden’s administration verified its assistance for the transgender neighborhood, releasing a pronouncement celebrating today, which takes place to be Transgender Day of Exposure. President Biden hired “all Americans to join in the fight for full equality for all transgender people.”
Today, we honor and commemorate the accomplishments and resiliency of transgender people and neighborhoods. Transgender Day of Exposure acknowledges the generations of battle, advocacy, and guts that have actually brought our nation closer to complete equality for transgender and gender non-binary individuals in the United States and around the globe,” the declaration checks out. “Their trailblazing work has given countless transgender individuals the bravery to live openly and authentically. This hard-fought progress is also shaping an increasingly accepting world in which peers at school, teammates and coaches on the playing field, colleagues at work, and allies in every corner of society are standing in support and solidarity with the transgender community.”
The administration keeps in mind that “In spite of our progress in advancing civil rights for LGBTQ+ Americans, too many transgender people — adults and youth alike — still face systemic barriers to freedom and equality.”
“Transgender Americans of all ages face high rates of violence, harassment, and discrimination. Nearly one in three transgender Americans have experienced homelessness at some point in life. Transgender Americans continue to face discrimination in employment, housing, health care, and public accommodations. The crisis of violence against transgender women, especially transgender women of color, is a stain on our Nation’s conscience,” the administration stated, including: “The Biden-Harris Administration is committed to fulfilling the promise of America for all Americans by stamping out discrimination and delivering freedom and equality for all.”
The administration was company in its dedication to the Equality Act, which would offer federal civil liberties securities on the basis of sexual preference and gender identity.
“The Equality Act will deliver legal protections for LGBTQ+ Americans in our housing, education, public services, and lending systems. It will serve as a lasting legacy to the bravery and fortitude of the LGBTQ+ movement,” the pronouncement checks out. “Vice President Harris and I affirm that transgender Americans make our Nation more prosperous, vibrant, and strong. I urge my fellow Americans to join us in uplifting the worth and dignity of every transgender person.”
