Well, hardly a week goes by without a pro-LGBTQ announcement from the White House! So this week, on the agenda, President Biden flipped the ban that prevented protection for LGBTQ people in healthcare.
The Trump administration has been relentlessly attacking health care for LGBTQ+ people when in office, including rescinding an Obama-era rule that protected against discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender identity. This put LGBTQ+ people at risk of being denied care or being treated unfairly by healthcare providers.
A few days ago, the Biden administration announced their intention to reinstate this rule. The decision was widely welcomed by LGBTQ+ rights organizations, which have been fighting for this change for many years.
