Since news of the memo broke, the organisation has launched a #WontBeErased hashtag on Twitter and called for supporters to attend a protest rally at the White House on Monday 22 October.
The department argued in its memo that key government agencies needed to adopt an explicit and uniform definition of gender as determined 'on a biological basis that is clear, grounded in science, objective and administrable.' The agency's proposed definition would define sex as either male or female, unchangeable, and determined by the genitals that a person is born with, according to a draft reviewed by The Times.

US President Donald Trump and his administration are considering implementing a memo that would change the definition of sex and negatively affect an estimated 1.4 million people in the US who do not identify as their birth gender.
The Trump administration is reportedly working to dramatically roll-back protections for transgender students and narrow the definitions of sex and gender that courts have increasingly used to provide protections for LGBTQ people. "The sex listed on a person's birth certificate, as originally issued, shall constitute definitive proof of a person's sex unless rebutted by reliable genetic evidence".
The Trump administration wants to legally erase the existence of transgender people by defining gender "as a biological, immutable condition determined by genitalia at birth", the New York Times reports.
