Log Cabin Republicans Oppose Trump Transgender Military Statement

Log Cabin Republicans Oppose Trump Transgender Military Statement

Jul 26, 2017

Washington, D.C. — Today, President Donald J. Trump announced the United States military would not “accept or allow” transgender servicemembers “in any capacity.”

In response, Log Cabin Republicans President Gregory T. Angelo issued the following statement:

This smacks of politics, pure and simple. The United States military already includes transgender individuals who protect our freedom day in and day out. Excommunicating transgender soldiers only weakens our readiness; it doesn’t strengthen it. The president’s statement this morning does a disservice to transgender military personnel and reintroduces the same hurtful stereotypes conjured when openly gay men and women were barred from service during the military’s ‘Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell’ era. As an organization that led the charge against that hateful policy, Log Cabin Republicans remains equally committed to standing up for transgender military personnel who put their lives on the line to keep us free.
