Fresh off the state’s passage of marriage equality, Delaware Attorney General Beau Biden is taking a front-row seat in the effort to pass legal protections for transgender people in the state. “I support providing protections from violence and discrimination based on gender identity and expression under Delaware law,” Biden says in a new video. “I will work with our General Assembly to pass legislation that will provide such protections this year.” “[She] has spoken to me about her fear of living without basic legal protections,” Biden, the son of the vice president, says of a conversation he had with a young transgender woman.
