GLAD Cheers Federal Department of Health and Human Services Move to Strengthen Non-discrimination Protections for LGBTQ+ People Accessing Vital Programs

GLBTQ Legal Advocates & Defenders (GLAD) is pleased that the Biden Administration has moved to prevent discrimination against LGBTQ+ people in important social services programs funded by the federal Department of Health and Human Services (HHS). 

“At a time when many state legislatures are working overtime to prevent LGBTQ+ people—particularly transgender people—from accessing health care and essential services, we appreciate the Biden Administration’s move to clearly ensure protection for the constitutional rights of LGBTQ+ people and their families to receive services they need to maintain their health and well-being,” said Jennifer Levi, Senior Director of Transgender and Queer Rights at GLBTQ Legal Advocates & Defenders.
