On “Transgender Visibility” day, March 31, President Biden decorated the White House with flags alluding to the transgender community, with the colors pink and pastel blue.
He also issued a statement supporting and valuing their existence as a supposedly necessary link to the prosperity of the nation. In this way, the Biden administration demonstrates once again its interest in imposing the LGBT agenda as part of its leftist objectives.
White House Director of Political Strategy and Outreach Emmy Ruiz was the one who announced that Biden would display the pink and pastel blue transgender flag at the White House.
“flags will be on display at the WH. Imagine being a trans kid and feeling seen by the highest office in the land,” Emmy Ruiz also said in a Twitter statement.

Biden also issued a statement Wednesday from the official White House website to mark Transgender Day of Visibility, in which he seemed to not only congratulate the community on their day, but extol them as an example of sorts to follow.
“Transgender Day of Visibility recognizes the generations of struggle, activism, and courage that have brought our country closer to full equality for transgender and gender non-binary people in the United States and around the world,” read Biden’s statement, reported by Breitbart.
Biden reminded transgender activists in his message of his administration’s support for LGBT struggles and ideals, including the confirmation of transgender Rachel Levine as undersecretary for health at the Department of Health and Human Services.
“Vice President Harris and I affirm that transgender Americans make our Nation more prosperous, vibrant, and strong,” the statement concluded. “I urge my fellow Americans to join us in uplifting the worth and dignity of every transgender person.”
President Biden has been criticized by conservative and religious sectors since the beginning of his term in office when he pushed through the controversial “Equality Act,” which proposes, among other things, to eliminate the legal recognition of male and female sex from the biological sense of the term.
President Biden, who has repeatedly spoken out in defense of gender ideology and to the detriment of traditional values, expressed his deep support for the legislation and the representatives who pushed for it again.
“I applaud Congressman David Cicilline [D-RI] and the entire Congressional Equality Caucus for introducing the Equality Act in the House of Representatives yesterday, and I urge Congress to quickly pass this historic legislation.”
Ryan Anderson, president of the Ethics and Public Policy Center (EPPC), warned in a statement that the legislation is something of a double-edged sword, which, with talk of protecting minorities, ends up going after majorities who do not embrace the new gender ideologies with the full weight of the law.
The Equality Act is legislative malpractice that turns equality on its head. It isn’t drafted as a shield to protect vulnerable minorities from unjust discrimination, but as a sword to persecute those who do not embrace new sexual and gender ideologies. https://t.co/YSWJpB6R7m

Prominent evangelical pastor Franklin Graham enthusiastically criticized the controversial Equality Bill, assuring that it is a “smokescreen” that has absolutely nothing to do with equality. He warned of the dangers if the bill is approved, especially for conservative society and people of faith, who will be persecuted for not agreeing with those principles or ideals.
The Equality Act has nothing to do w/ equality. It’s a smokescreen to force Americans to accept the LGBTQ agenda & it creates a lot of INEQUALITY for people of faith. It punishes individuals & organizations that disagree based on their moral convictions. https://t.co/vJPG5Jy3jD
