On October 16, the State Department hired prominent intersex activist Kimberly Zieselman as senior advisor to Jessica Stern, Special Envoy for LGBTQI+ Human Rights.

The move is just the latest attempt by President Biden to increase diversity and representation in his administration, and comes just months after the envoy position was created with the goal of “ensuring that US diplomacy and foreign assistance promote and protect the human rights of LGBTQI+ persons around the world.”
