The Trump administration is erasing transgender people from government websites

The Trump administration is erasing transgender people from government websites
While multiple references to the LGBTQ community have disappeared, trans people are specifically being erased entirely.

The Sunlight Foundation, which oversees the Web Integrity Project, has been working to notify the public about changes that occur on America’s websites when they’re not related to actual policy change.

“Our examination of key case studies…identified two key trends: the removal of access to resources about discrimination protections and prevention, especially for transgender individuals, [and] the removal of resources containing LGBTQ community-specific information,” the foundation wrote in review.

Rachel Bergman, the co-director of WIP, told The Daily Beast in 2018 that “We’ve seen a general reduction in the prominence of LGBT content across Health, Labor, Education, Housing—even the White House itself…this is definitely a signal that LGBT concerns have been significantly de-prioritized and, in the worst cases, they’re actively being undermined.”

WIP’s latest report provides further evidence that the administration is not only overlooking LGBTQ people in general, but at times completely erasing the mention of transgender people altogether.


I’m old enough to remember when we put a condom over a senator’s entire house (f*ck that guy). Isn’t it time again for direct action? I think these selective “moral majority” types forgot who they’re f*cking with.
