HUD secretary says trangender equality “a priority” in the Obama administation

U.S. Secretary of Housing and Urban Development Shaun Donovan

THE GUERRILLA ANGEL REPORT — U.S. Secretary of Housing and Urban Development Shaun Donovan:  “the [Obama] administration is the first to view the fight for transgender equality “not as an issue — but as a priority.”

Secretary Donovan made these comments during a speech at the National Center for Transgender Equality’s annual event on Nov. 15th in Washington DC. He also made note of the numerous actions taken within the HUD to curtail discrimination against trans people as well as the administration’s record number of LGBT and trans appointments.

Mara Keisling, executive director of NCTE: “Secretary Donovan’s presence echoes what we at NCTE have long known about HUD and the rest of the Obama administration, and that is that transgender people matter. We are a priority for the administration, and it shows in the policies that we are winning.”

More from The Dallas Voice:  Donovan says trans equality is a priority, not an issue.
