Biden Declaration of March 31 As "Transgender Day of Visibility"

Earlier this week, President Biden signed a Presidential Proclamation (full text) declaring March 31 as "Transgender Day of Visibility". The Proclamation reads in part:

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.  Their trailblazing work has given countless transgender individuals the bravery to live openly and authentically.  This hard-fought progress is also shaping an increasingly accepting world in which peers at school, teammates and coaches on the playing field, colleagues at work, and allies in every corner of society are standing in support and solidarity with the transgender community.
