President Obama Recognizes Trans Mothers In His Mother's Day Proclamation
And as an unapologetically Black trans person, I am bursting at the seam proud of the first Black POTUS being a staunch ally when it comes to trans issues.
Just 24 hours after he mentions the trans community in his remarks to the Howard University Class of 2016, in his 2016 Presidential Mother's Day Proclamation he recognizes the existence of trans mothers.
Guess some peeps at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue have been reading TransGriot when it comes to this issue.
Here's the proclamation.
Thank you Mr. President for recognizing the existence of trans mothers. As for why this is a BFD to the American trans community, it's important and it matters in a time when the Republican Party and the conservative movement is trying to turn our existence into an election year political wedge issue.
