President Biden addressed transgender Americans during his speech to a joint session of Congress on Wednesday, telling them that he "has your back."

"To all the transgender Americans watching at home, especially the young people who are so brave, I want you to know that your president has your back," Biden said.

He then urged Congress to pass the Equality Act, which protects LGBT Americans from discrimination in the workplace, housing, or health care.
