'A really important day’: Sacramento LGBT Community Center’s Alexis Sanchez on Transgender Day of Visibility
Communities in Sacramento and across the world are marking International Transgender Day of Visibility on Thursday. The day is meant to celebrate transgender people and raise awareness about discrimination. The Biden administration also said Thursday that Americans will be allowed to choose an “X” for gender on their passport applications beginning on April 11 and the federal government will make it easier for people to change their gender information on their Social Security cards. The Transportation Security Administration said it will also become more inclusive by setting new gender-neutral screening standards at checkpoints.
