Statement from Mayor Carlos A. Gimenez on President Trump's changes to transgender policy

MIAMI (February 23, 2017)

Miami-Dade County will continue to stand for LGBT rights in our community. We are an inclusive community, and have policies in place to protect our LGBT residents. Despite changes at the federal level, we are confident that transgender-protection policies passed by the Board of County Commissioners in 2014 will remain in place in Miami-Dade County.

Miami-Dade County remains committed to improving quality of life and fostering tolerance and diversity for all 2.7 million residents who call Miami-Dade County 'home.'
