TLDEF Observes Memorial Day


                                     TLDEF Observes Memorial Day

“On this Memorial Day, Transgender Legal Defense & Education Fund honors all the brave service members who lost their lives in the line of duty. As we commemorate our fallen heroes, we pay special tribute to the transgender members of the armed forces who fought and died for this country even as they were denied the chance to serve openly as their authentic selves.”

“We also salute the transgender individuals currently serving. In the shadow of the Trump Administration’s continued efforts to prohibit open transgender military service, TLDEF is proud to support two lawsuits against the ban. We will continue to stand with our trans troops who deserve to be treated with respect as they serve with distinction.”
