United States President Joe Biden has declared Easter Sunday “Transgender Day of Visibility.”

The International Transgender Day of Visibility was created on March 31, 2009, and has continued to be celebrated every March 31.

The day was created to honour transgender people and raise awareness of the discrimination they continue to face.

The White House disclosed that Biden’s declaration was backed by the US Constitution.

According to Biden: “Now, therefore, I, Joseph R. Biden Jr., President of the United States of America, by virtue of the authority vested in me by the Constitution and the laws of the United States, do hereby proclaim March 31, 2024, as Transgender Day of Visibility.

“I call upon all Americans to join us in lifting up the lives and voices of transgender people throughout our nation and to work towards eliminating violence and discrimination based on gender identity.”

Since its inception, the Biden administration has made LGBT activism a cornerstone of its policy priorities. He boasted in his statement that he appointed transgender leaders to his administration and ended the ban on transgender Americans serving openly in the military.

Republicans criticized President Biden after he issued a Friday proclamation recognizing March 31 as Transgender Day of Visibility, as he has done every year he has been in the Oval Office.

From the Trump campaign to House leadership, Republicans went after Biden for mocking faith as Easter this year falls on March 31.

“The Biden White House has betrayed the central tenet of Easter — which is the resurrection of Jesus Christ,” House Speaker Mike Johnson (R-La.) said Saturday on social media.

Trump’s campaign said in a statement that the president should “issue an apology to the millions of Catholics and Christians across America who believe tomorrow is for one celebration only — the resurrection of Jesus Christ.”

Conservatives criticized the president, who is Catholic, saying he is undermining faith by recognizing the event on the same day as Easter, an important religious holiday.

White House spokesperson Andrew Bates responded Saturday.

“As a Christian who celebrates Easter with Family, President Biden stands for bringing people together and upholding the dignity and freedoms of every American,” Bates said in a statement to multiple outlets.

“Sadly, it’s unsurprising politicians are seeking to divide and weaken our country with cruel, hateful, and dishonest rhetoric. President Biden will never abuse his faith for political purposes or for profit.”
