STOP THE TRUMP-PENCE TRANSGENDER MILITARY BAN
People across the country agree, anyone who is qualified and willing to serve should be able to do so openly. Contact Congress and tell them to protect transgender troops.
As GLAD and NCLR continue to fight Trump’s baseless and immoral transgender military ban in court, we are joining with the Trans People of Color Coalition (TPOCC) and SPART*A this Veterans Month to highlight the stories of transgender veterans and service members of color.
For more than 40 years, the National Center for Lesbian Rights (NCLR) and GLBTQ Legal Advocates & Defenders (GLAD) have been moving the needle on LGBTQ equality.
These courageous individuals, both named and anonymous, are standing up on behalf of their community and will make a difference for generations to come.
June 14, 2019 – GLAD, NCLR, Equality CA Applaud Ninth Circuit Ruling Giving Green Light for New Review of Transgender Military Ban
“This is a hugely positive development. The Ninth Circuit recognized that the Mattis plan clearly targets transgender people, and that the government faces an uphill battle in justifying it.” – Jennifer Levi, GLAD Transgender Rights Project Director
If you have been or could be affected by the transgender military ban, we’d like to hear from you.
We filed Doe v. Trump on August 9, 2017 – the first lawsuit to challenge the ban, and the first to win a nationwide preliminary injunction against it.
