United States President Joe Biden has proclaimed Easter Sunday as the “Transgender Day of Visibility.” This commemoration, established on March 31, 2009, seeks to honor transgender individuals and raise awareness about the discrimination they endure.

The White House revealed that Biden’s declaration is grounded in the authority granted by the US Constitution. In his proclamation, Biden stated: “Now, therefore, I, Joseph R. Biden Jr., President of the United States of America, by virtue of the authority vested in me by the Constitution and the laws of the United States, do hereby proclaim March 31, 2024, as Transgender Day of Visibility. I call upon all Americans to join us in uplifting the lives and voices of transgender individuals across our nation and to strive towards eradicating violence and discrimination based on gender identity.”

Throughout his tenure, the Biden administration has prioritized LGBT activism, with Biden noting his appointment of transgender leaders to his administration and the reversal of the ban on transgender Americans serving openly in the military.

However, some of Biden’s efforts for transgender inclusivity have faced backlash, including events at the White House.

Meanwhile, LGBTQ individuals have been cautioned against visiting Nigeria by the spokesperson of the Nigerian Police Force, Muyiwa Adejobi. Adejobi warned that LGBTQ members participating in the “Of Course” challenge would be pursued by the police, labeling them as “criminals.” This warning comes amidst a trending video featuring purported LGBTQ members discussing their identities and societal perceptions.
