Gratefully the new administration is off to a great start: President Biden is reversing much of the cruel, inhuman and discriminatory deregularization that affects LGBTQ individual Americans profoundly. Trump's actions made it permissive to freely and broadly discriminate against individuals from the LGBTQ community.
Biden’s executive order essentially calls on federal agencies to broadly apply last year’s landmark Bostock ruling, which expanded the definition of sex discrimination to include discrimination based on sexual orientation as well as gender identity. Notably, the executive order included the line, “Children should be able to learn without worrying about whether they will be denied access to the restroom, the locker room, or school sports,” and stated that Bostock should also apply to Title IX, the federal law that prohibits discrimination in federally funded schools.
