Poll: Majority of Americans Support Transgender Troops

The American public understands what top military leaders understand: qualification for military service should be based on the ability to meet military standards, not on singling out one group of people for different treatment.
– Jennifer Levi, GLAD

The President’s continued attacks on transgender service members are  not only dangerous and unprincipled, they are out of step with the American public.
– Shannon Minter, NCLR

Organizations leading the legal fight against the Trump
administration’s ban on transgender military service issued the following
statement in response to new
data from the Public Religion Research Institute, which shows that support
for transgender service in the military increased among Republicans by 10
points in the past two years — from 37% in 2017 to 47% in 2019 — and majority
support for transgender troops across geographic and religious demographics.

Statement by Jennifer Levi, Director of the Transgender
Rights Project at GLBTQ Legal Advocates & Defenders (GLAD):

“The American public understands what top military leaders
understand: qualification for military service should be based on the ability
to meet military standards, not on singling out one group of people for
different treatment. Banning transgender troops weakens our military, harms
service members, and betrays the core values of equality and fairness that most
Americans support.”

Statement by Shannon Minter, Legal Director of the
National Center for Lesbian Rights (NCLR):

“Polling on this issue has repeatedly shown that an
overwhelming majority of Americans support transgender service members.
The President’s continued attacks on transgender service members are  not
only dangerous and unprincipled, they are out of step with the American
public.”
