Transgender people and allies rallied outside the White House in Washington, D.C. on Oct. 22, to protest the Trump administration’s reported plan to narrow the definition of gender for federal programs.

A report by the New York Times on Oct. 21, said the administration was “considering narrowly defining gender as a biological, immutable condition determined by genitalia at birth,” in an undoing of a more flexible Obama-era guidance.
