In honor of the “Transgender Day of Visibility,” a host of government agencies and departments issued statements pushing gender ideology urging Americans to be “allies” of trans-identifying people and decrying “discrimination.”
The Naval Sea Systems Command published an article on Friday criticizing states that have banned sex change surgeries for kids and urging Americans to be an “ally” of trans-identifying people.
“Even if you are not a part of the trans community, a great way to celebrate Transgender Day of Visibility is being an ally,” a press release from the command center read. “There is no one way to be a ‘perfect’ ally. The transgender community is diverse and complex, coming from every region of the world, from every racial and ethnic background, and from every faith community.”
The press release adopts woke language about gender being “assigned at birth” and claims that “some state legislatures are advancing bills that target transgender people and limit local protections.”
Over at the Department for Health and Human Services, Assistant Secretary for Health Rachel Levine, a man who identifies as a woman, announced in a Twitter video that the department would be flying the transgender flag on Friday over its building in Washington, D.C.
“For the second year in a row, the transgender flag is flying above our department in Washington, D.C. And this is an affirmation of the administration’s support for the transgender community and across the nation, as well as our support for evidence-based gender-affirming care,” Levine said in a video.

In another statement, Levine said that more “progress” needed to be made for minorities, immigrants, and young people who identify as transgender.
HHS Secretary Xavier Becerra also put out a tweet thread on Friday highlighting what HHS was doing to support the “trans community.” Becerra highlighted that the department had released “guidance to state child welfare agencies that makes clear that states should use their child welfare systems to advance safety and support for LGBTQI+ youth, which includes access to gender-affirming care.”
The General Services Administration also issued a statement saying that it acknowledged “the adversity and discrimination that the #TransgenderCommunity continues to face across our Nation and recognize the strength, resilience, and joy of #transgender, #nonbinary, and #GenderNonconforming people.”
According to activist Charlotte Clymer, the Veterans Affairs Administration even recognized the day, with Secretary Denis McDonough hosting “a small breakfast in his office with trans military veterans to mark Trans Day of Visibility. We discussed service to country, the importance of community, and public policy, notably health care.”

The government-run website Youth.gov pushed people toward resources put out by the Gay, Lesbian, and Straight Education Network (GLSEN), a Left-wing group that opposes bills that segregate bathrooms by sex and related legislation.
Secretary of State Antony Blinken also put out a statement saying that “transgender rights are human rights.”
“We celebrate the achievements and resilience of transgender, nonbinary, and gender non-conforming persons around the world. We recognize their bravery in their hard-fought work for equality, inclusion, and the full recognition of their human rights, which continues to this day,” he added.
USAID recognized the day by pointing to a program that gives taxpayer dollars to groups led by transgender-identifying individuals. Samantha Power, head of USAID, said that she was inspired by individuals around the world who stood up to “misinformation” regarding transgenderism.
In an interview with USAID Senior LGBTQI+ Coordinator Jay Gilliam, the U.S. official, who spoke at Sydney WorldPride earlier this year, said that USAID was “intentionally and thoughtfully design programs that empower all transgender, gender nonconforming, and nonbinary individuals to be instrumental in the transformation of their own societies.”
Not to be outdone, the National Weather Service even posted a transgender flag to its Twitter account.
