The Trevor Project’s Statement to the Supreme Court Decision on the Transgender Military Ban

“It is disappointing that the Supreme Court has elected to allow a ban on open service by transgender members of our armed forces to go into effect while the policy’s constitutionality has yet to be decided,” said Amit Paley, CEO & Executive Director of The Trevor Project. “We want LGBTQ and especially transgender youth to know that this decision says nothing about their qualification to serve or their value as people. From the day the idea of a ban was tweeted, The Trevor Project has been pushing back, because we know firsthand the negative effects of the military ban on transgender youth. We also know the resilience and strength of the transgender community, and that their presence in our armed forces only makes our nation stronger.”
