The contact form on the White House website now includes a place to name your pronouns
Today is the dawn of a new era — or the continuation of one after a four-year pause that included so much trauma, pain, and misery. President Joe Biden (boy does it feel good to type that) and Vice President Kamala Harris (even better) have only been officially in office for a few hours and already, we’re seeing hopeful signs of better days ahead. The contact form on the White House website now has a dropdown menu to choose your pronouns.
I mean, hell yes.
Look at that. Beautiful.
Whoever answered the WhiteHouse.Gov information line, when asked about the pronouns said, “Oh yeah. That’s new!” Then when they learned we were press transferred us to a press line that rang forever then hung up. So this isn’t exactly official confirmation that it’s new, but come on. As if Trump’s White House had this as an option.
There’s also an option for “Mx” in the “prefix” menu. Oh and the site is already updated to reflect the new administration and excuse me while I refresh this all night just to see these faces.
Of course, Twitter already noticed including the account for GLAAD.

As a straight Hispanic male this makes me so so so happy…representation matters! For everyone to have a voice matters no matter how you identify! We are all human and human kindness starts to be restored today!!

Educators: the god damn White House is doing it, you have no more excuses for not allowing students space to provide their pronouns. https://t.co/YjTOmU144l

Great to see @whitehouse following @CGLUK‘s lead 😉 But on a serious note – such a simple thing might make the world of difference for someone else – consider including pronouns in your social media and emails #pronounsareimportant https://t.co/h3TjrSXfUi

“Contact the white house” page now has new prefix choices (“Mx” wasn’t present under Trump) and a whole new pronouns section (completely absent under Trump) pic.twitter.com/3uc41LA7vj

Already seeing the sweet queer love from the White House! 🏳️🌈🏳️⚧️ it feels so good not to have LGBTQs hated by the president. Looking forward to more changes! https://t.co/uNlL0LKw2Y

Trump is gone and we have a new administration full of people that actually care. If that’s not enough to put a smile on your face today, I don’t know what is.
