Raffi Freedman-Gurspan has been hired as an outreach and recruitment director for presidential personnel in the White House Office of Presidential Personnel. In a news release, the National Center for Transgender Equality’s Executive Director, Mara Keisling, said: "President Obama has long said he wants his administration to look like the American people. I have understood this to include transgender Americans. A transgender person was inevitably going to work in the White House."
This event teaches us once more that all humans are equal, no matter what their gender, religion, skin colour or sexual orientation is. We hope that many other employers all over the world will be as open-minded as President Obama is!
