Urgent: The Ban on Transgender Troops Takes Effect. Take Action with Us!

The Trump Administration's ban on transgender troops in the military takes effect Friday, April 12th, 2019. "The new regulation keeps transgender troops from serving in the nation's military openly and also blocks all use of DoD or DHS resources to fund sex reassignment surgical procedures." - CBS News

The LOFT: LGBT Community Center condemns this policy which is harmful, discriminatory, and unacceptable. It is a direct attack on our transgender community.
