    Gov Hochul orders World Trade Center, NY landmarks lit up in trans flag colors on Easter Sunday


    On Saturday, New York Governor Kathy Hochul declared March 31, 2024, Transgender Day of Visibility, and announced that state landmarks would be lit up with pink, white, and light blue lights.

    In a statement, Hochul said, "Today we celebrate Transgender Day of Visibility by acknowledging the contributions that members of the transgender community have made in New York State and across the country."

    “I am proud of the strength transgender New Yorkers display every day and want to make one thing clear: you are always welcome in New York. You are loved," she added.

    The landmarks that are to be lit up include One World Trade Center, the Kosciuszko Bridge, The H. Carl McCall SUNY Building, the State Education Building, the Empire State Plaza, Niagra Falls, and others.

    In the proclamation, the governor proclaimed the state would stand up for the rights, visibility, and safety of New Yorkers and strengthen measures to protect the "transgender, gender non-conforming, and non-binary (TGNCNB) community.

    This comes as President Biden has taken heat for recognizing "Trans Day of Visibility" while simultaneously banning all displays of religious symbols at its Easter celebration the same day.

    The first to state his case seems right until another comes and cross-examines him.

    I think the White House is doing it too. But I don't get it - they are not visible - heck they are everywhere, you can't get away from them.

      Leftists will be leftists. They should rename NYC since leftists like doing that (Ho Chi Minh City, Leningrad, Stalingrad, etc.). How about Blasiograd? Pass legislation that every building must be painted in rainbow colors. Hochul can then hold a news conference assuring businesses how New York is business friendly and they are only going after anti-democratic forces.

      Meanwhile in another blue state, Gavin Newsom has raised the minimum wage for cooking Big Macs to $20 per hour.

        March 31st, 2009, and every March 31st since then, has been declared to be the International Transgender Day of Visibility. By coincidence, this year Easter also falls on March 31st. Nothing to see here.

          I don't see it as a big problem going forward, since the two aren't scheduled to coincide again until 2086.

            It's an obvious slap in the face to Christians to take what is an explicitly Christian holiday celebrating the most important event in human history, and using it to promote a practice that is explicitly condemned in scripture.

              Thanks for the history lesson. I looked it up myself and you're right. The only thing I saw was the idea was in 2009 and the first declared day was March 31, 2010.

              I was surprised that this is the first I recall hearing about the day. Warning to everyone that stuff can be under the radar for a long time before it appears.

                Yup. What I think has made it an issue is the number of jurisdictions announcing that they would start recognizing/celebrating it this year when it happened to be on Easter which has given a bad impression to say the least.

                  The fact we've made a national holiday out of a leftist ideological cult that forces it's will down our throats on a federal level is bad enough.

                    Why does gender dysphoria need a day for it? I'm still confused how one is supposed to feel like a particular gender. I have 26 X chromosomes and no Y chromosomes, so I am a female human. Doesn't matter if I don't wear makeup or high heels. Doesn't matter that I don't like romance in my stories. My genotype and phenotype are female, so I'm a woman even if I don't fit the stereotype.

                      I don't know the answer to that either. But I do understand the concept of extending empathy, compassion and love towards people who are different to me and whom I don't yet fully understand.

                      My genotype and phenotype are female, so I'm a woman even if I don't fit the stereotype.
                      Indeed. But many human cultures historically have had the option for people of opting out of their gender. So there must always have been people who didn't see it the way we do. I can respect that, without necessarily understanding it.

                        Well, yeah, it's mean to be a jerk to others for being different. Just hope people aren't saying you have to fit a stereotype to be a certain gender.

                            Maybe they should shift Transgender Day to April 1.
