Most transgenders barred from serving in US military; as per Trump’s order

order has enraged the Lesbian Gay Bi-sexual and Transgender community

In a latest order that could be described as controversial by many, US President Donald Trump has issued orders to ban most transgender people from serving in the US military.

However, this has been exempted from certain circumstances.

The order has enraged the Lesbian Gay Bi-sexual and Transgender community.

In his presidential memorandum, Trump said transgender persons with a history or diagnosis of gender dysphoria — those who may require substantial medical treatment — are disqualified from military service except under certain limited circumstances.

It is said that the it would be on the discretion of secretary of defence and secretary of homeland security to consider as to what exactly may constitute those circumstances.

He has however allowed those transgenders who are already in the military to continue with their service.
