Pentagon Announces Transgender People Will Be Allowed to Enlist in Military

The Pentagon has announced that transgender people will be able to enlist in the military despite opposition from President Donald Trump.

The new policy will go into effect on Jan. 1.

Under this policy, transgender troops will be required to prove they have been ‘clinically stable’ in their preferred sex for at least one and a half years.

In addition, individuals receiving hormone therapy must be stable on their medication for the same amount of time.
