Government agencies reveals new measures to support Transgender community

On March 31, 2022, as part of the celebration of Transgender Day of Visibility(TDOV), the Biden administration announced new actions to “remove barriers that transgender people face accessing critical government services,” including at the Social Security Administration (SSA), Department of State, and U.S. Equivalent Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC).

In a statement recognizing TDOV Biden said, “To everyone celebrating Transgender Day of Visibility, I want you to know that your President sees you,” adding that “so many transgender, nonbinary, and gender-nonconforming Americans … serve proudly and openly in our military; get elected and make policy at every level of government; and run businesses, cure diseases, and¬†serve our communities¬†in countless other ways.”

More than a dozen actions announced on March 31 are intended to further develop travel experiences for transgender people, provide resources for transgender kids and their families, further improve access to federal services, and advance inclusion and visibility in federal data.
