Celebrity Reactions to Transgender Military Ban

Stars Are Standing in Solidarity With the Transgender Community After Trump's Military Ban

On Wednesday, Donald Trump announced that the United States will no longer "accept or allow" transgender people in the United States military in a series of tweets, and it didn't take long for celebrities to react on social media. Aside from speaking out on the inhumane ban, some of Hollywood's biggest stars also took this moment to stand in solidarity with the transgender community through the hashtag #TransRightsAreHumanRights. See how your favorite celebs are fighting back against this new ban.

I have met many transgender Americans over the years who have served or are currently serving our country in the military. I have heard from them humiliating stories of being misgendered and experiencing various kinds of mistreatment when they are willing to put their lives on the line in ways many of us would never do including our current President. This latest reversal of another Obama administration policy continues to send the message to trans Americans that our lives, our safety and service are less valuable and unwanted in this country, the country I love and hold so dear. Let's all come together and send the message to trans Americans that despite what this president and administration proclaims that trans lives, safety and service are valuable, that they matter." #TransRightsAreHumanRights #ProtectTransTroops #TransIsBeautiful
