Vice President Joe Biden: ‘trans discrimination is the civil rights issue of our time’

Vice President Joe Biden

THE GUERRILLA ANGEL REPORT — A volunteer at an Obama campaign office asked the visiting vice president if he could help get civil rights for transgender people and Biden replied that it’s the “civil rights issue of our time.”

Biden made the comment in Sarasota, Florida on Tuesday after talking with Linda Carragher Bourne, the mother of Miss Trans New England.

Bourne later told a reporter: “A lot of my friends are being killed, and they don’t have the civil rights yet. These guys are gonna make it happen.”

Biden, of course, nailed down Obama’s stance on LGBT marriage earlier this year and has historically been one of our strongest allies in Washington.
