The National Guards of California, Nevada, Washington, Oregon, and New Mexico will allow transgender troops to continue to serve openly despite Trump’s ban that came into force on April 12, 2019.
On Friday, the Republican National Committee (RNC) endorsed President Trump's efforts to ban military service for transgender people, but not only.
This new year began with a huge victory for the transgender community. For the first time, trans people can openly serve in the US military. But President Trump could now attack transgender prisoners.
While a survey reveals that more than the majority of Americans support trans troops, the battle for trans rights continues. A lawsuit was launched against the law which ban trans people from serving openly in the military.
