The Biden administration is sending half a million dollars to English-speaking teachers in Pakistan as part of a program to reach transgender youth.

“What is the most effective way to reach the greatest number of Pakistani transgender youth and Afghan teachers, students, and young professionals from diverse locations across Pakistan?” grant applicants are asked, according to a Fox News report. 

The Regional English Language Office (RELO) in Pakistan announced the grant program last week, a program ostensibly focused on strengthening diplomatic ties between the U.S. and Pakistan, along with promoting “community cohesion through positive messages and inclusive perspectives that increase social tolerance and counter extremist narratives.” 

The program accepts grant requests from $25,000-75,000. 

Of the three areas the grants are designed for, the third mentions transgender youth: “Professional Development for Transgender Youth and for Afghan Teachers, Students, and Young Professionals Residing in Pakistan.” 

A State Department spokesperson said that the agency often focuses on “marginalized communities,” which in this case is transgender youth. The spokesperson also clarified that none of the funds were to be used for gender transitions. 

The State Department’s “2022 Country Reports on Human Rights Practices” for Pakistan indicates that the population largely rejects transgender ideology popular among America’s left.
