President Biden Declares Easter Sunday as Transgender Day of Visibility

Transgender individuals in the United States have received a significant show of support as President Joe Biden formally declared Easter Sunday as the “Transgender Day of Visibility.” This proclamation, announced on Saturday, aligns with the International Transgender Day of Visibility, established on March 31, 2009, and observed annually since.

The purpose of this day is to honor transgender individuals and shine a light on the persistent discrimination they face. The White House emphasized that President Biden’s proclamation is in line with the principles of the US Constitution.

In his proclamation, President Biden called upon all Americans to recognize and celebrate the lives and voices of transgender individuals across the nation. He also urged efforts to combat violence and discrimination based on gender identity.

The Biden administration has consistently demonstrated its commitment to LGBT activism. President Biden highlighted his appointments of transgender leaders within his administration and the reversal of the ban on transgender Americans serving openly in the military.

While the Biden administration’s support for transgender inclusivity is clear, past events at the White House focused on transgender inclusivity have faced unintended consequences.
