Achieving LGBTQ Equality Through Litigation, Legislation, Policy, and Public Education for 40 Years

BREAKING: We Just Sued Trump

We said we would do it. And we did.

Today, NCLR and GLAD stood together and filed a federal lawsuit in D.C. challenging Trump’s directive to reinstate a ban on transgender people serving in the military.

President Trump is attacking courageous soldiers who have dedicated their lives to serving our country. Thousands of transgender soldiers have come out in reliance on last year’s policy permitting open service. As a result of Trump’s recent directive, they have lost any security about their future service and face the loss of jobs, benefits, healthcare, and more. No one should be treated this way, much less those who have given their lives to military service.

Our plaintiffs serve in the Air Force, the Coast Guard, and the Army. Their years of service range from three years to two decades, and include tours in Iraq and Afghanistan. They deserve our support. 

Please support transgender service members. They have courageously stood up for us. Let them know that we have their backs.
