“I want to thank the Biden-Harris administration for their commitment to equity and inclusion by reversing the egregious Trump-era ban that barred transgender individuals from serving in the Armed Forces. The vast majority of Americans agree that your gender identity should not prohibit individuals from serving in the military and today`s executive order reaffirms that this administration is committed to dismantling discriminatory policies that target our LGBTQIA+ community.”
