Biden Admin Provides $2 Million to Organization Targeting HIV Among ‘Racially Diverse Trans Women’

The Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) is spending millions of dollars to address HIV among “racially diverse trans women.”

HHS is granting Public Health Foundation Enterprises $2 million to “develop, implement and measure the impact” of a social media program designed to increase awareness of HIV among transgender women.

“Southern states are disproportionately impacted by HIV,” a description of the grant reads. “Among states in the deep south, which frace the vast majority of new HIV infections, HIV diagnoses rates in Louisiana were second only to Georgia.”

Forty-six percent of transgender women tested positive for HIV in New Orleans, the grant notes.

The goal of the grant is to “adapt promising trans-specific HIV interventions to meet the HIV prevention needs of trans women in New Orleans, Louisiana.”

The grant began on September 17, 2021, and runs through July 31, 2026.

Joe Biden has made transgenderism a focal point of his presidency.

During last year’s “Transgender Day of Visibility,” Biden declared that transgender individuals are “made in the image of God and deserving of dignity, respect, and support.”

“We’ll never stop working to create a world where you won’t have to be brave just to be yourself,” Biden wrote on X.

Similarly, during November’s “Transgender Day of Remembrance,” the White House issued a statement reading, “My Administration ended the ban on transgender Americans serving our country and I signed historic executive action to strengthen civil rights protections for all LGBTQI+ Americans.”

“The Department of Homeland Security, with support from the Department of Justice and the Department of Health and Human Services, have launched the LGBTQI+ Community Safety Partnership that works hand-in-hand with LGBTQI+ community organizations to provide critical safety resources,” the statement added. “We must never be silent in the face of hate.”
