USA, although Joe Biden was elected. After the New Democrats took office, he hurried to suppress some of the anti-LGBT laws passed during his predecessor’s time. But at the same time, many states, led by Republican members, have taken control measures, especially for transgender people.
According to Report by the American Human Rights Voluntary Charity ACLU, Indicating an increase in the number of bills hostile to these people by the beginning of 2021, 60 texts accepted or discussed in 25 U.S. states.

Regression or “regression”
In the United States, many improvements have been made in recent months by transgender activists. They were particularly successful in June 2020, when the Federal Supreme Court, with a conservative majority, definitively upheld the ban on dismissing an employee based on sexual orientation or identity criteria. Most recently, the Biden administration withdrew from a lawsuit in Connecticut seeking to prevent transgender people from participating in high school girls’ teams.
Still, five days after taking office, on January 25, 2021, the new US president authorized transgender people to return to the U.S. military. His 2017 Twitter posts suggest that Donald Trump was banned from joining their military under the pretext of being too high for “medical expenses”.
