Health and Human Services Secretary Xavier Becerra said Monday that HHS needs to go “on the offensive” when it comes to gay and transgender issues.
Mr. Becerra shared his opinion during the opening address of the department’s first-ever Pride Summit, according to the Washington Examiner.
“This game of defense can get tiring. We want offense,” Mr. Becerra said. “Let’s play on the offensive and let’s grow.”
He also told attendees that people were “expecting much more” from the HHS on LGBTQ issues, and that there’s a sense that the department needs to “move faster.”
