The White House has officially proclaimed Sunday — the day on which billions of Christians will celebrate the resurrection of Jesus Christ — as “Transgender Day of Visibility.”

President Joe Biden released a proclamation on Friday, calling on “all Americans to join us in lifting up the lives and voices of transgender people throughout our Nation and to work toward eliminating violence and discrimination based on gender identity.”

In the proclamation, the White House added that on Easter Sunday “we will honor the extraordinary courage and contributions of transgender Americans and reaffirm our Nation’s commitment to forming a more perfect Union — where all people are created equal and treated equally throughout their lives.”

In each of his first three years in the White House, Biden has issued proclamations for “Transgender Day of Visibility” to be recognized on March 31. Leftist activists across the country will celebrate “Transgender Day of Visibility,” including some who will host a “Trans Day of Vengeance” concert on Sunday. The White House proclamation also comes just days after the anniversary of the Covenant School shooting in Nashville, where a trans-identifying woman murdered three children and three adults at the Christian school. Biden did not issue a statement for the anniversary of the deadly shooting.

In his Friday proclamation, Biden criticized “extremists” in Republican-led states who have passed laws protecting children from life-altering gender procedures and conservatives who have fought to remove sexually explicit books from school libraries.

“These bills attack our most basic American values: the freedom to be yourself, the freedom to make your own health care decisions, and even the right to raise your own child,” Biden wrote.

The president then claimed that trans-identifying Americans, “especially women and girls of color,” face an “epidemic of violence.”

“Let me be clear: All of these attacks are un-American and must end,” Biden added. “No one should have to be brave just to be themselves.”


Biden has used his office repeatedly to promote pro-trans and LGBT policies, inviting trans-identifying social media influencers to White House events, such as Pride Month celebrations hosted on the South Lawn.

The White House “Transgender Day of Visibility” declaration was slammed by social media users, who were enraged the president promoted the day on Easter Sunday.

“Hey Joe, I will NOT be celebrating your woke, IMAGINARY, demonic holiday,” wrote comedian and conservative commentator Chad Prather. “It is a DISGRACE to put a ‘TRANSGENDER DAY OF VISIBILITY’ on Easter of all days.”

Kaylee McGhee White, op-ed editor at The Washington Examiner, added, “Such utter contempt for Christians and their beliefs.”

Southern Baptist Theological Seminary professor Andrew T. Walker said the “true priorities” of the Biden administration “are desecrating the human body.”

“While American Christians celebrate the pinnacle of their faith on Resurrection Sunday on March 31 (the faith that nourished the American experience), the Decency is Back™️ caucus in the Biden administration are celebrating the same day as ‘Transgender Day of Visibility.’ Read the room, you degenerate neo-gnostics,” he wrote. “Maybe they’ll muster the courage to say something about Easter, especially from this supposedly ‘Catholic’ President, but we know their true priorities are desecrating the human body, not celebrating its renewal through Jesus’s resurrection.”
