Because Donald Trump’s military ban of transgender individuals is idiotic and prejudiced, we’ll be publishing responses from the LGBTQ and military communities. They sometimes overlap. That’s the point.
Air Force staff sergeant Logan Ireland began his service as a woman and transitioned to a man after two years, People reported. Ireland had this to say about Trump’s transgender military ban:
“For the President to deny an able-bodied, fully qualified person the inherent right to raise their right hand and serve their country, potentially giving their own life for our freedoms, is doing this country an injustice. I would love for my President to meet me so I can tell him about the 15,500 honorably serving transgender military members that are fighting right now for their liberties and for their country.”
