Joe Biden Appoints Trailblazing Trans War Veteran To Presidential Transition Team

Share on Facebook

Joe Biden has just made the first steps towards building a more inclusive and diverse America…

Just days after his election success, Biden is already doing more for the LGBTQ community than the current president, Donald Trump has done in 4 whole years.

The Trump administration backed legal attempts to ban trans girls from playing school sports and encouraged discrimination against trans people in healthcare settings and homeless shelters.

They banned transgender people from serving openly in the U.S. military.

And today, it got just that.

And Biden was ultimately projected to be the forty-sixth president of the United States.  

And, in a lengthy statement, he accused Biden and his team of rigging the entire election. He said this: “We all know why Joe Biden is rushing to falsely pose as the winner, and why his media allies are trying so hard to help him: they don’t want the truth to be exposed. “The simple fact is this election is far from over. Joe Biden has not been certified as the winner of any states, let alone any of the highly contested states headed for mandatory recounts, or states where our campaign has valid and legitimate legal challenges that could determine the ultimate victor. “In Pennsylvania, for example, our legal observers were not permitted meaningful access to watch the counting process.  Legal votes decide who is president, not the news media.”

“Beginning Monday, our campaign will start prosecuting our case in court to ensure election laws are fully upheld and the rightful winner is seated. “The American People are entitled to an honest election: that means counting all legal ballots, and not counting any illegal ballots. This is the only way to ensure the public has full confidence in our election. “It remains shocking that the Biden campaign refuses to agree with this basic principle and wants ballots counted even if they are fraudulent, manufactured, or cast by ineligible or deceased voters. Only a party engaged in wrongdoing would unlawfully keep observers out of the count room – and then fight in court to block their access. “So what is Biden hiding? I will not rest until the American People have the honest vote count they deserve and that Democracy demands.”

He tweeted shortly after the news was announced that he is “honored” America has chosen him as a leader.

The clip was posted to Twitter shortly after the announcement was made.  

While he didn’t exactly get a landslide victory, the Democratic candidate won over 77 million votes – more than any other president in American history, and exceeding the previous record Barack Obama set in 2008.

His vice-president, Kamala Harris, has made history off her own accord.  

As well as the first Black woman to be given the role.

This is a huge achievement for not only Harris but for women and people of color all across the country.

Clearly, Biden and his team are paving the way for a more progressive and diverse America.

The historic news has just come in about Biden’s latest addition to his transition team.







Shawn Skelly, a transgender war veteran, is the co-founder of the LGBTQ+ advocacy organization, Out In National Security, and is also a former special assistant to the Undersecretary of Defense for Acquisition, Technology, and Logistics.

She was the first transgender veteran to get a presidential appointee when Barack Obama named her director of the Office of the Executive Secretariat at the Department of Transportation.

She will be one of those responsible for evaluating the Department of Defense, understanding how it operates and helping ensure a smooth transfer of power. Congratulations, Shawn! Keep on reading for the latest Biden news…
