According to Daily Wire, the US State Department has set aside $49,813 for YR Gaitonde Medical, Educational and Research Foundation, an organization based in India, with the goal to "sensitize employees of corporate entities in Hyderabad and Chennai toward transgender persons in their workforce, adopt inclusive policies, and create a safe and nurturing environment."
The group reportedly received the grant on May 30, with it set to expire on May 31, 2024. The grant was reportedly issued to support "the achievement of US foreign policy goals and objectives, advance national interests, and enhance national security by informing and influencing foreign publics."
Biden's state department has also set aside $42,125 in additional "non-federal funding" for the group, with no source listed.
Breitbart News reported that the US State Department first announced its plans to provide thousands of dollars in cash to the Indian organization on grounds that they would set up "Pride/Rainbow groups within corporations that actively create awareness about TG persons and their rights."
The State Department said they were offering the taxpayer funds in hopes of influencing corporations in India to "develop active transgender employee recruitment plans."
"The longer-term intention is that these corporations and businesses increase their hiring of members of the transgender community and help their employees and the general public be more accepting," the State Department explained.
This grant comes as Indian officials and activists push to adopt more policies surrounding transgenderism. In 2020, US Consulate General Kolkata helped open the nation's first transgender medical clinic in Eastern India, according to Daily Wire.
In addition to funding transgenderism in India, the Biden administration is providing Nepal with $2,315 to "conduct English language classes to professional transgender women makeup entrepreneurs," and also pledged $30,000 to a pro-transgender organization in Kyrgyzstan, Breitbart reports.
