Joe Biden: Trans* discrimination "the civil rights issue of our time"

Thumbs up for not being on the wrong side of history!
According to The Huffington Post, Vice President Joe Biden spoke to a woman volunteering at an Obama for America office in Sarasota, Florida last Tuesday. The woman, Linda Carragher Bourne, stated that she has a daughter who is Miss Trans New England. She asked Biden if he would help them, to which he responded that transgender discrimination is "the civil rights issue of our time". Whatta guy. Bourne later told a reporter that she believes the Obama Administration will bring civil rights to the trans* community.

These comments make Joe Biden by far the highest-level elected official who has stated his support for trans* equality, a group that is often ignored in discussions on LGBTQ rights.

This isn't the first time Biden has aligned himself with the LGBTQ community. In May, he unexpectedly announced that he was "absolutely comfortable" with same-sex marriage. In an interview with ABC News four days later, Obama himself endorsed it: "I’ve just concluded that for me personally it is important for me to go ahead and affirm that I think same-sex couples should be able to get married,” making him the first sitting president to defend marriage equality.

Four more years! Four more years!
