Biden's New Comment on Trans Day of Visibility Ignites Republicans

Reading now: 669

Joe Biden's latest comments reacting to conservative ire over the Transgender Day of Visibility has prompted yet more pushback from Republicans.The International Transgender Day of Visibility was created in 2009 by LGBTQ+ activist Rachel Crandall Crocker, to be held each year on March 31.

The day was created in response to what Crocker saw as a lack of days meant to celebrate the trans community and act as a balance to the Transgender Day of Remembrance, which is a day of mourning.Even though the event is 15 years old, controversy was sparked among Republicans this year when Biden released a statement proclaiming March 31, 2024, as the latest Trans Day of Visibility.

This year's event coincided with the heterodox Christian Easter Sunday for the first time since 2013, sparking outrage from conservatives, including House Speaker Mike Johnson, accusing Biden of hijacking the holiday.

A Newsweek fact check of the accusations determined them to be false, given the event's history.Speaking to reporters on Monday, Biden was pressed about his thoughts on the outrage from the likes of Johnson.
