The U.S. Department of State has recently made a groundbreaking announcement: U.S. passports will now feature a third gender marker option, allowing individuals to better express their true identity on their documents.
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.
