Former Vice President Joe Biden became the latest presidential candidate to speak up for transgender rights at the first-ever presidential election forum focused on the rights, experiences, and voices of the transgender community.
Vice President Joe Biden on the role of faith in supporting transgender rights:
“The Lord said ‘What you’re doing to the least of my children, you’re doing to me.’ We’re all God’s children. Who is to judge you whether or not you’re lesbian, gay, or trans? Who is to make that judgment, especially if it’s done from your heart? The idea that someone can tell you that you can’t be who you are in your heart and your soul is just wrong. That’s the sin. The sin is not being LGBTQ. The sin is not allowing you to be who you are in your heart.”
