HUD Secretary Carson wants to roll back Obama mandate on gender identity at homeless shelters

Housing and Urban Development (HUD) Secretary Ben Carson wants to roll back an Obama-era mandate that single-sex homeless shelters funded by his department admit residents based on their stated gender identity instead of their sex at birth, arguing that people could intentionally misrepresent their gender for malicious reasons.

HUD said the change is needed because the Equal Access Rule under the Obama administration “leaves no room for shelter providers to make decisions about potentially dangerous individuals who may misrepresent their gender to access gender-specific shelters.”
