Levine appeared on a podcast hosted by Connecticut Children’s Hospital and pledged that trans youth and their families had the full support of the Biden administration.
“I can say that you, the children that you serve, the young people that you serve, their families, and you all have support at the highest levels of the federal government,” Levin said on the podcast. “President Biden supports you. I as the Assistant Secretary for Health will support you and I talk about this topic, everywhere I go, to get the word out.”
With reference to the interview’s resurfacing, Levin noted that she hoped the topic of transitioning and trans rights would one day become less of a political “minefield.”
