Biden to Trans Youth:, ‘Your President Has Your Back’.

On Wednesday night, President Joe Biden delivered his first address to a joint session of Congress. Biden touched on a number of issues, including the need to pass the Equality Act. The Equality Act, which would ban discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender identity, has yet to be voted on in the Senate. I also hope Congress can get to my desk the Equality Act to protect the rights of LGBTQ Americans, Joe Biden, via ‘Advocate’. He then directly addressed “transgender Americans," voicing his genuine support. To all the transgender Americans watching at home — especially thevyoung people who are so brave — I want you to know that your president has your back, Joe Biden, via ‘Advocate’. The President’s support for trans youth comes amid a wave of anti-LGBTQ and anti-trans state bills. Currently, there are over 200 anti-LGBTQ bills being considered in at least 30 states. According to the Human Rights Campaign, half of them are targeting transgender people. Especially in this moment, when LGBTQ rights are under attack in several states across the country, it was important to see President Biden make it clear tonight that his priority would be continuing our shared fight to ensure that every American has access to the fullness of opportunity our country affords, Alphonso David, Human Rights Campaign President, via NBC News.
