LGBT Groups Come Together To Oppose Transgender Military Ban
While the LGBT community has made huge strides in recent years, for a time, two large factions in the coalition were rifting with one another- severely hampering progress of the group along the way. However, one event in the recent months brought these two feuding sides together, as they look to overcome a shared exclusion: President Trump’s Transgender military ban.
“LGBT organizations and factions that used to battle one another are now working together, and swiftly.” Says Maxwell PhD candidate Eric van der Vort in a Washington Post article. “That’s likely to make a big difference in whether Trump’s ban on open transgender service will survive.”
