The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s National Weather Service has endorsed radical leftist gender ideology by marking International Transgender Day of Visibility.
“To promote justice, equality, and equity for the transgender community, the National Weather Service family champions and stands alongside our transgender employees on this day and every day! #TransDayOfVisibility,” the National Weather Service tweeted on Friday.
Babylon Bee CEO Seth Dillon sarcastically responded to the NWS post by tweeting, “This is important because no one in the media or government ever acknowledges anyone in the transgender community.”
The NOAA Climate.gov Twitter account retweeted the NWS post and declared, “Happy #TransDayOfVisibility.”

On Thursday, President Joe Biden had issued a proclamation declaring Friday as “Transgender Day of Visibility” — he had previously issued proclamations in 2021 and 2022 as well.
NOAA is an agency of the U.S. Department of Commerce, which quoted from and linked to the president’s proclamation in a tweet on Friday.

The State Department also marked the day.
“On Transgender Day of Visibility, the United States reaffirms that transgender rights are human rights. We celebrate the achievements and resilience of transgender, nonbinary, and gender non-conforming persons around the world. We recognize their bravery in their hard-fought work for equality, inclusion, and the full recognition of their human rights, which continues to this day,” Secretary of State Antony Blinken said in a statement.
“At the same time, we underscore the work that remains to ensure that all transgender, nonbinary, and gender non-conforming persons are able to live authentically, safely, and with dignity. This work includes ensuring that all persons are able to secure identity documents that fully reflect who they are. Transgender persons deserve to live free from violence, discrimination, and stigma,” Blinken said.
Earlier this month, a transgender woman from Argentina was among the honorees at the International Women of Courage Awards ceremony hosted by Blinken and first lady Jill Biden at the White House — a transgender woman is a biological man who identifies as a woman.
