After President Trump took to Twitter to announce a ban against transgender people being active members of the military yesterday, tons of celebrities have spoken out sharing their reactions and extending their love and support to the transgender community.
“After consultation with my Generals and military experts, please be advised that the United States Government will not accept or allow transgender individuals to serve in any capacity in the U.S. Military. Our military must be focused on decisive and overwhelming victory and cannot be burdened with the tremendous medical costs and disruption that transgender in the military would entail. Thank you,” Donald Trump said in a series of tweets.
The ban, which was previously lifted by Barack Obama, isn’t just an act of intolerance against transgender individuals. Rather, it has sparked outrage from all people – friends, loved ones and allies of people who are members of the community.
