Trump stops fighting against trans troops, at least for now


Transgender people will be able to sign up for the US military as the President’s administration announced it will not resist it anymore. The Administration said it would wait for an independent study on trans people in the military before considering whether it is still necessary to ban trans people from serving. “This is a major victory in the litigation and great news for transgender troops, transgender military academy and ROTC students, and transgender people who have been waiting to enlist,” Shannon Minter, legal director at the National Center for Lesbian Rights said. Four different courts have issued rulings blocking the Trump administration from stalling the implementation of Obama-era guidelines on trans military officers, so that they were allowed to join forces from January 2018. And at least one transgender person will be there to challenge the ban on day one, we reported about him earlier today.
