The White House website’s simple act of trans solidarity proves why this will be the most inclusive administration ever

For the first time in history, the White House website is asking visitors for their pronouns and offering gender-neutral options to choose from.

President Joe Biden wasted absolutely no time in making his pro-trans stance clear, with the website updated mere hours after his inauguration.

The simple yet monumentally meaningful detail was noticed by the LGBT+ advocacy group GLAAD, which happily shared an image of the White House contact page on Twitter.

Those contacting the White House can now select from a range of pronoun options or alternately indicate that they’d rather not share their pronouns if they wish.

They can also choose the gender-neutral prefix “Mx”, which is listed alongside “Mr,” “Mrs” and “Ms”.

The simple act spoke magnitudes after Trump’s sustained attacks on the LGBT+ community over the past four years, and Twitter users were delighted to see it.
