President-elect Joe Biden says he will get rid of Trump’s anti-LGBT+ actions as soon as he will effectively be in charge from January 2021.
Nest US president is promising big changes to make up to some of the damages done by Trump, especially when it comes to LGBT+ rights around the states: the ban on Transgender Military Personnel and Trump’s ‘freedom to discriminate’ initiatives will be apparently erased as of January 2021.
According to Associated Press, Biden will confirm Obama’s rules barring anti-LGBT+ discrimination for Federal Contractors, he will then create high-level positions on LGBT+ rights in all federal agencies and will act on schools too.
Nicolas Talbott, a transgender man who started a legal action over Trump’s military ban, told the Press: “I look forward to being allowed to re-enroll in ROTC so I can continue to train, keep up my fitness to serve, and become the best army officer I can possibly be.”
Regarding schools, Biden, will get schools to allow trans-students to access toilet facilities according to their gender identity, and he will also put new efforts to add questions about sexual orientation and gender identity to national surveys.
Anyway, latest researches have highlighted that Biden may struggle to deliver on his promise to use his first 100 days to pass the Equality Act, which would amend civil rights laws and ban anti-LGBT+ discrimination in all 50 states: apparently Republicans’ fate and control over the Senate depends on the results of the important round of elections in Georgia.
